Each appointment is for a term of two years. The appointments come into effect from 1 April 2015.

Ms Brittain, Mr Mass and Mr Askew will succeed Graham Beale, Paul Swann and Andrew Turberville Smith respectively.

John Griffith-Jones, FCA chairman, said: “These appointments ensure that once again the Practitioner Panels will have experienced and respected voices making the case from the industry’s perspective.

“The current regulatory framework depends on the panels being able to play their part and I am sure that the new chairs will continue the excellent work of their predecessors.

“I would like to thank Graham, Paul and Andrew for their contributions over the last two years which oversaw the establishment of the FCA.”
