The Right DA Club has appointed Bob Scott to lead its owned directly authorised (DA) proposition as managing director.

Scott brings extensive experience of implementing, developing and delivering national distribution channels in the mortgage and protection markets.

He was previously a director and owner of FCA regulated networks and he also brings experience in lending and product penetration schemes.

Martin Wilson, CEO at The Right DA Club, said: “We’ve provided years of successful support to those wishing to be part of a network and now we’re excited to bring our directly authorised proposition to the fore, and we’re delighted to welcome Bob on board to champion this with existing and prospective members.

“I know he will be a valued and crucial welcome to the development of the DA Club and I look forward to working with him.”

Scott added: “I have always watched the changing attitude and successes of both the true appointed representative and directly authorised markets.

“Due to these changing attitudes of brokers and advisers, whilst I believe there will always be a strong demand and necessity for both platforms, I believe there is now a real demand for something different.

“A true DA offering but with unrivalled support. We are determined to be the brand of choice in the market place for this new style of distribution.”
