MASTER: SM&CR (Leeds)

29 October • 9:30am - 1:00pm •

So much regulation. So many changes. So many acronyms! Fear not, we’re here to upskill you and your knowledge, so you feel prepped and ready for the upcoming changes. In 2019 we will be looking at the Senior Manager and Certification Regime.

What will it cover?

This fully interactive workshop, will demystify the rules around SM&CR, and provide you with information and guidance to ensure your firm fully meets these requirements. It will equip you with the practical tools and knowledge and implement any necessary changes and minimise any risks within your company from these changes in legislation.

SM&CR is the big regulatory development of 2019. It brings in significant changes for senior managers and advisers and also – for the first time ever – rules for other staff such as administrators. There is a significant amount of work to be undertaken to prepare for the new regulations and firms should be putting together their project plans sooner rather than later.

This workshop covers the core requirements of SM&CR, suggests ways of complying with the new regulations and flags some additional issues that may result from the new rules.

Why should I attend?

SM&CR is a big change to many firms, our workshops provide you with a clear plan of action, and a framework to do so. On the day we will help advisers to;

  • Create and establish a project plan.
  • Prioritise internal procedures and training plans.
  • Understand how the regime will affect Senior Managers and understand the new responsibilities they will have.
  • Learn new requirements for recruitment and HR procedures.
  • Understand the new conduct rules training and the content to be covered.
