"The FSA is right to make sure the industry sticks to the standards set for it," Investec Asset Management CEO Hendrik du Toit told Financial News. "But, by any standards of any industry, I would challenge anyone to argue that it is not largely aligned with the interests of its clients."
"We are the guardians of people's savings, so we need to be worthy of their trust," Jupiter Fund Management CEO Edward Bonham Carter added. "The industry is not perfect. But it is in a better place than it was 10 years ago."
