THE Association of Private Client Investment Managers and Stockbrokers (Apcims) chief executive David Bennett stepped down at the organisation’s annual Brussels conference yesterday.
Bennett’s departure follows that of the body’s head of regulation Ian Cornwall.
It is understood Bennett will now focus on his role as deputy chairman of Europe Analytica, the public affairs company he co-founded in Brussels.
Bennett joined Apcims in 2007 after a stint with the City of London’s EU office.
He is a well known figure in the City, working closely with the FSA, Bank of England, Treasury, DTI and the Cabinet Office, working across London, Paris and Frankfurt.
