Enhancing our conduct capabilities in the FS Sector
Konexo is pleased to welcome David Robinson, as Regulatory Director, to its Financial Services team.
David brings over 20 years’ experience in the pensions, banking, insurance, investment, and intermediary sectors. He specialises in Conduct of Business, and works with firms to ensure that the advice, products, and services provided to their customers are appropriate and compliant. David has considerable experience in assisting firms to identify and manage issues relating to historic advice standards.
In his most recent role as a freelance regulatory consultant, David successfully delivered two concurrent s.166 (FCA reports by skilled persons) activities: one related to Unregulated Collective Investment Schemes and the other related to Defined Benefit Transfer Advice. These activities helped to deliver approximately £100m in customer redress.
He has also been providing consultancy services to Eversheds Sutherland and Konexo for the past three years, helping with M&A due diligence alongside our Financial Services team. Prior to this David worked for a range of high-profile brands including Aon, Coutts & Co, Deutsche Bank, and Lloyds Banking Group.
Ian Stott, Head of Financial Services at Konexo, commented:
“We are pleased to welcome David, who will be focusing on developing our conduct-related capabilities in relation to specialist regulatory projects and large scale complex remediation projects. David’s appointment will bolster our conduct offering for our clients as his many years of experience in this area will have a positive impact on our ability to win and deliver new work.”
“Joining Konexo is an exciting next step for me. It offers me the chance to be part of a real future-facing business. Through my previous work with Konexo I have built a strong relationship with its growing Financial Services team, which is well-established in the market. My knowledge, experience and client connections will complement Konexo’s existing projects and global client base.”
