He is chairman of The IMS Group and is currently advising a number of stockbroking and asset management businesses in the City of London on matters of business strategy, governance and operational performance.

Mr Solway said: “I am particularly pleased to become chairman at a time when Tisa is growing in influence within the industry.

“The recent completion of the re-registration project is an excellent example of how Tisa is able to bring interested parties together to find a consensus solution to an issue that affects both the industry and the consumer.”

Mr Brasington said: “I am extremely proud to have been chairman for the past 12 years but feel now is the time to hand over the reins.
