IFA throws in towel on campaign to restore trust in financial services

Shane Mullins, chief executive of Nottingham-based Fiscal Engineers, has given up his campaign to restore trust in financial services a year after starting it, according to reports.
The Times reported that Mullins had dropped the campaign, The Question of Trust, and was said to be ‘hugely disenchanted’ by the industry’s ‘apathy and malaise.’
Mullins began the campaign last November but told The Times he was returning to his day job as leading members of the financial services industry ‘failed to face the question of trust’.
He told the paper: ‘While some in the industry have acknowledged the issue and been very supportive the general apathy and malaise has been hugely disappointing and frustrating.’
