RES welcomes new Institutional Member

We are pleased to welcome the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as our newest institutional member. The FCA regulates the conduct of 50,000 firms in the UK to ensure that the financial markets are honest, competitive and fair. They regulate the conduct of around 50,000 businesses and work alongside the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) supervising 48,000 firms.

Kate Collyer, Chief Economist and Head of Economics Profession at the FCA said: “This is an important time for financial services regulation as we respond to an uncertain economic environment, the adoption of technologies such as AI and crypto, and ensure the sector contributes to sustainability ambitions. We are excited to become an institutional member of the RES and look forward to discussing these issues with other members and working with the wider economics community to deliver common goals.”

RES Institutional Membership has been developed with the needs of organisations in mind, including economic consultancies, regulators, think tanks, government departments and other organisations employing economists or with links to economics.
