Why should I attend?
Good old Consumer Duty. It feels like we have been discussing it for a lifetime, with us all on tenterhooks for the final policy statement. It’s finally here and we can’t escape it (nor should we want to!) The countdown clock has now started for July 2023’s implementation date so we’re here to help you understand exactly what it is you need to do to prepare for it.
Consumer Duty isn’t a binary set of rules, and many firms have found that hard to digest. Off the back of MiFID II, GDPR, SM&CR and various other acronyms that we are sure you are familiar with, we all knew exactly where we stood and what would be deemed ‘falling short of the rules’ so we could implement policies internally to address this. But this is different. This is a whole new principle implemented by the FCA. Consumer Duty empowers regulated firms to make the exact decisions, but mandates that those decisions are based on positive client outcomes, and consistently putting the client at the centre of the decision-making process.
We’re entering a new paradigm of the regulator, are you ready for the journey?
