With the removal of CF 30’s and certain types of NED’s from the FCA Register on commencement of SM&CR for solo regulated firms in December 2019, there has been an increasing focus on its intended replacement – The Directory.
The Directory is the new public register for checking the details of key people working in financial services. As part of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR), the directory will provide a wide range of information that firms will be responsible to the FCA for notifying. Banks and Insurers must have their data uploaded by the 9th Mar 2020 and commence regular data updates, whilst solo regulated firms have until the 9th Dec 2020.
Join Sarah Thwaites, Senior Policy Adviser, Business, Risk, Culture & Resilience at the IA and Julie Pardy, Director of Regulation & Market Engagement at Worksmart Ltd, for an informative walk through of the current extended requirements and challenges a firm’s Directory submissions will bring.
The Webinar content will cover:
• Why the Directory is being introduced
• What data will be required from firms
• What challenges this might present
• What data updates will be required after initial submissions
• The issues that the banks have faced in preparing for these new requirements
