Trustguard appoint Tony Williams as head of compliance

Tony has a wealth of experience to draw on, having previously worked for Innovate, Trigold, and Abbey.

Tony will oversee Trustguards’ appointed representative network and compliance services for directly authorised firms, in addition to Trustguards’ own internal compliance infra-structure.

Tony Williams commented: "I am really looking forward to taking this wider role within Trustguard, and to continuing the work I have started with our appointed representatives. Trustguard is a highly respected player in the mortgage packaging industry, and I’m confident that we can be just as successful in the crucial areas of compliance and regulation”.

David Cole, Chief Executive of Trustguard said: “Tony has played a key role in the development of our compliance and network services. Our recent FSA inspection showed that we have the right structure and procedures in place, both internally and for our AR’s. We are confident that we are well placed to take advantage of the opportunities that lie ahead.

“Tony takes over from Nick Battersby who, having set up the structure of Trustguards’ AR network and internal compliance function, is to leave the company in order to join RAMP. We wish him every success in the future”.
