Tributes Paid to Lord Myners01.17.2022
Following news of the death of Lord Myners, Nikhil Rathi, Chief Executive of the FCA, issued the following statement on the organisation’s behalf:
‘I am saddened to hear about the death of Lord Myners. I had the privilege to work closely with Paul during the financial crisis and saw at first hand his ability to quickly grasp the enormity of the situation and navigate the whole system towards decisive solutions. He always expressed his views frankly and in my most recent discussions with him he continued to be motivated by the need to ensure the integrity of the financial system. I always appreciated his support and I offer my sincere condolences to his family.’
Very sad to hear that my predecessor Lord Myners has died. He was hugely respected in the City and beyond, and helped to steer Britain’s response to the global financial crisis. My thoughts are with his family and friends. https://t.co/r6ZX3fa1Bw

Really sad to hear this news today. Difficult to underestimate the sheer scale of Lord Myners’ impact on UK corporate governance & institutional investment. Not to mention pivotal role as Labour City Minister in stabilising banks after GFC. #legend #RIP 😢 https://t.co/5z7THddufJ
