Hector Sants - an appraisal


He has been sent off with gushing endorsements from Adair Turner ringing in his ears and a general feeling that he did a great job. But how should we rate his performance?

I’m not sure I would match Turner’s gushing appraisal of Hector’s time in charge (“He is a truly outstanding public servant of great integrity and has provided the FSA with dedicated leadership and focus through extremely turbulent times”) but I think he did inherit a regulator that was not prepared for what was coming.
