Mr Biggins has more than 25 years of experience including roles at Royal London, an IFA and a variety of management and senior management positions at Suffolk Life and most recently IFDS.

David Dalton-Brown, director general of Tisa, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to add the considerable talents of Stephen and Renny to the Tisa team. 

“Stephen’s expertise in policy development and presentation will be an invaluable resource for us to draw on. 

“In particular, he will help to shape our policy work in distribution and in wrap and platforms to make it more consumer focused, including our ongoing work on the Financial Advice Market Review and the development of our proposals to enable a guidance service to be made widely available.

“Retirement saving is another key Tisa theme in 2017 as we build on the work in our acclaimed response to the HM Treasury pension tax relief consultation, prepare our input into the review of auto-enrolment and continue to tackle the pressing need for the self-employed to be brought into the pensions regime.”
