Panel members

Members of the FCA Smaller Business Practitioner Panel are all senior practitioners from smaller firms across the regulated community.

Members are generally recruited to the Panel through a process of open competition and following a thorough due diligence process. Membership is kept under regular review to ensure that its composition continues to be relevant and representative of the regulated community.

Members are formally appointed by the FCA Board and the Chair must also have the formal approval of the Treasury. The FCA has adopted diversity targets for its independent panels reflecting those it introduced in April 2022 for the board and executive management of listed companies.

The Chair of the Panel also represents the interests of smaller firms as an ex-officio member of the FCA Practitioner Panel.
