The Financial Services Advisory Board ( FiSAB) is the custodian and advocate of the Strategy for the Financial Services Industry in Scotland.
The Financial Services Advisory Board ( FiSAB), the pioneering collaboration between the financial services industry, trade unions, the Scottish Government ( SG), Scottish Enterprise ( SE) and Universities Scotland, is the custodian and advocate of the Strategy for the Financial Services Industry in Scotland (the Strategy).
In leading the development of the Strategy in 2003, the Financial Services Strategy Group ( FSSG), comprising industry leaders, trade unions, government and the wider public sector, formed a unique and equal partnership to define the environment which would ensure that Scotland remains home to an innovative, competitive and thriving financial services industry. The Strategy, launched in March 2005, was a culmination of this work.
FiSAB is supported by the Financial Services Implementation Group ( FiSIG) which delivers the Strategy.
Strategy Annual Reports have been published since 2006 and provide a summary of achievements in delivering Strategy objectives, comparative data on the progress made by the industry in Scotland and an outline of plans for future years. These reports also proved a successful platform to publicise not only the Strategy, but also Scotland's position as a leading financial services centre.
