More than a third of the SFE board have joined the within the last half-year, filling vacancies created by the previous chairman and three directors completing their full tenure.

Grant said: “The addition of Anthony, Sue and Vida to the SFE Board is hugely positive for the organisation, our membership and the wider industry. SFE has been privileged to have a consistently high calibre of board directors, and these new appointments ensure that legacy continues.

“Following the introduction of a new strategy two years ago SFE’s role, in addition to representation, is now firmly anchored in facilitating collaboration across our diverse and accomplished financial services ecosystem.”
