Sir Nigel Wicks was speaking exclusively to ITN Banking News, a brand new channel from ITN Productions and the BBA launched today, aimed at sharing best practice and featuring some of the biggest and most influential names in the banking sector.

Sir Nigel said there is a need for the financial sector to radically change the way it operates and behaves, as well as regenerating the sector from the inside out to restore customer, political, investor and community trust.

"I am honoured to have been asked to take on the role of BBA chairman. In this country and at this time, this vitally important industry is working to rebuild its reputation with its customers and to play its full part in restoring the UK's financial stability and helping to drive its economic recovery. I am delighted to take on this challenge, and look forward to working with Anthony Browne and his team," he said.
