Carney and Morgan to speak at Pimfa conference
 Mark Carney, former governor of the Bank of England

Mark Carney and Baroness Nicky Morgan are set to speak at the Personal Investment Management & Financial Advice Association's conference next month. 

In an update today (May 5) the trade body confirmed the former governor of the Bank of England and former MP and chairwoman of the Treasury select committee would feature as keynote speakers at its virtual conference in June. 

The 'Pimfa Virtual Fest' will take place over two days at the beginning of next month and will run entirely online as a result of the social distancing measures currently in place across the country. 

Mr Carney joined the Bank of England as its governor in July 2013 and held the position until March this year, when Andrew Bailey left the Financial Conduct Authority to take up the role. 

Baroness Morgan was secretary of state for digital, culture, media and sport for a seven-month period until February this year, and previously served as education secretary and minister for women and equalities between 2014 and 2016.

During her time as a Conservative MP, Baroness Morgan also served as economic secretary and financial secretary to the Treasury and headed up the Treasury select committee until July last year.
