During his tenure AFME has become a stronger voice for the financial industry, respected across Europe and globally.

I am delighted to continue this important work.”

Simon Lewis, AFME Chief Executive, adds: “On behalf of the team at AFME I would like to thank Fred for his leadership over the past two years, it has been a pleasure to work with him.
