Andrew Smith

Managing Partner
Paxen Group

Having held senior leadership roles within the UK Financial Services industry for more than 20 years, I have built a significant reputation devising highly successful business change strategies that drive commercial growth, compliance and operational improvement.

As an executive director and FCA regulation Subject Matter Expert, I provide an objective challenge to both executive and non-executive committee Boards in the strategic planning and implementation of long-term initiatives that deliver growth and change across new markets.

Creating clear strategy to enable businesses to achieve their objectives is one of my greatest strengths. I have worked extensively with financial services organisations on devising effective Board and governance frameworks that can be implemented efficiently and easily, achieving buy-in and delivering outstanding financial results.

Sessions
 10:00 AM – 10:20 AM
The Motor Finance Outlook

Consumer credit is the fuel of the new car market. PCP and PCH have led the way in product innovation, making cars more affordable. The industry has changed its sales practices too, with better training and new reward structures. But in light of the recent Financial Conduct Authority review of motor finance, the regulator is likely to demand further changes. This session will examine the review and guide dealers on its likely consequences.
