The Financial Conduct Authority, the UK regulator, has appointed a former UBS and Goldman Sachs managing director, James Kelly, as an advisor in the wholesale banking and investment management division within its supervision section.

A part-time role, Kelly will advise the team on supervisory strategy, the FCA said in a statement last Friday. He takes up the role immediately, reporting to Will Amos, director of the FCA’s wholesale banking and investment banking division.

He is among a number of high-profile additions to the regulator. Former CEO of Kleinwort Benson, Rob Taylor, recently took up the role of head of wealth management and private banking in the regulator’s supervision division. He joined Karina McTeague, who was recruited last year as director of retail banking from Lloyds Banking Group. In the policy division, Mary Starks and Deborah Jones, were appointed to share the post of director of competition in September last year.

The FCA supervision team comprises Clive Adamson (director of supervision); McTeague (see above); Linda Woodall (director of mortgages and consumer lending); William Amos (see above); and Nick Poyntz-Wright (director of long-term savings and pensions).
