Media Release: Customer interests come first, Scottish Financial Enterprise CEO tells Thrive for Business members

OWEN Kelly, CEO of Scottish Financial Enterprise (SFE) will tell Thrive for Business members that “the success of our industry comes from serving clients and customers and their interests need to come first”.

Kelly is speaking to Thrive for Business on Wed 23 November at the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, in Edinburgh.

He said: “Financial services, as an industry and an employer, is central to Scotland’s continued prosperity. The biggest challenge for the industry is the combination of market uncertainties with continuing regulatory change. It is a bit like building a car while you are at the same time trying to drive through a storm.”

Asked what his career highlights were to date, he said: “Responding immediately on behalf of the industry to the unfolding financial crisis in 2008; working with Scotland’s leading fund managers to promote that sector of the industry in China; and helping to secure some big investments in Scotland from Japan in the 1990s.”
