Matthew Conway, who was director for strategy policy at UK Finance, has joined FTI Consulting’s strategic communications unit in London to support its EMEA financial services push.
He had led the UK government’s advocacy for the Financial Services and Markets Bill, regulatory reform, sustainability and diversity & inclusion initiatives.
Neil Doyle, who heads FTI stratcomm’s EMEA financial services group, said Conway would counsel clients as they wrestle with the significant changes in the UK’s financial sector that are expected under the new government headed by prime minister Liz Truss.
Conway’s “deep understanding of the complex regulatory landscape, along with his deep relationships across the sector, will enhance our existing public affairs offering, providing clients with a unique proposition as they look to navigate a period of change,” said Doyle.
Prior to joining UK Finance, Conway worked as head of group regulatory policy at Lloyds Banking Group and director of regulatory development at communications regulator Ofcom.
