FCA looks for members for its advisory committee on secondary markets

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is looking for expressions of interest from market participants to join our advisory committee.

The committee was established in 2022 and we are renewing the membership in line with our terms of reference.

The purpose of the committee is to support our work in wholesale secondary markets for equities, derivatives, fixed income and commodity derivatives.

The committee’s task is to:

  • help develop reforms that improve market competition, increase consumer protection and enhance the integrity of markets
  • identify market changes that may affect the proper functioning of secondary markets
  • provide data and analysis to support policy reforms

The committee is chaired by the FCA and is composed of senior individuals from firms active in financial markets, who are experts in how secondary markets function.

Members are appointed in a personal capacity. 

We will make sure there is balanced representation across the different types of firms active in wholesale markets. To that end, we are expanding the number of members to 25.

We will also seek to ensure appropriate diversity of the membership of the committee, in line with our commitment to promote diverse and inclusive financial services.

What to expect

The appointment lasts 2 years, and it can be renewed. 

The committee meets on a regular basis, normally quarterly, but can meet more frequently, if necessary, to carry out its functions.

How to apply

Market participants who are interested in joining the committee are invited to apply.

The deadline is 13 May 2024.

Please read the terms of reference before applying.
