BBC business journalist Liz Barclay is set to join the Financial Consumer Panel, which advises the Financial Conduct Authority.
Barclay — a broadcast journalist who has been specialising in personal finance for the past two decades — has presented such Radio 4 favourites as You and Yours, and is already on the boards of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and the Equity Release Council Standards Board, as well as being chairwoman of Camden Citizens Advice Bureau.
She is joined by Caroline Barr, a former Treasury executive, and Doug Taylor, leader of Enfield council who has worked as chief advocate of financial services at Which?, the consumer group. The trio will help the FSCP to challenge the City watchdog from consumers’ perspective, and are appointed for three years.
