The new Consumer Duty proposed by the FCA will place the responsibilities of a firm to avoid foreseeable customer harm squarely on the shoulders of Senior Managers and board members. There’s no ifs or buts on this as the regulator plans to hold Senior Managers accountable for assessing whether the firm is delivering good outcomes for its’ customers, consistent with the Consumer Duty. The new Consumer Duty, whilst currently in consultation, will likely see the FCA publish feedback and a final policy statement on the matter in the summer of 2022, with the rules likely to have to be implemented by April 2023 as it stands. It is increasingly a priority item for firms achieving compliance will be a major challenge for most.
With a new proposed Consumer Duty of Care, we discuss the links to potentially changing market supervision, and we think that we’ve got a full agenda of items to discuss and debate.
During the session delegates will be placed into working groups designed to facilitate a discussion with peers on the practical steps that businesses can take to ensure compliance with regulatory expectations. So, join the Worksmart team, Elephants Don’t Forget and Shoosmiths, for a lively discussion and update.
