In 2016 the banking sector was hit by the biggest change to their operations – the introduction of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR). Two years on since its implementation, FCA authorised firms, including asset managers, investment firms, insurers and consumer credit firms, now face the same fate. Are you ready?
Due to come into play from December 2018, the SMCR is designed to establish ‘prescribed responsibilities’ and accountability with regards to key conduct and prudential risks. Practically speaking, firms will need to overhaul their internal procedures and build a culture of accountability. There is alot firms need to do to become compliant. So, even though the extension date of SMCR has not yet been confirmed, we recommend you start preparing sooner rather than later.
In this breakfast briefing Buzzacott's specialists will take you through the ins and outs of SMCR and provide practical guidance on how to navigate the new regime and prepare your staff. During the briefing you will also have the opportunity to ask questions and share best practice with your peers.
Who is it for?
This event is suitable for FCA authorised firms, including asset managers, investment firms, insurers and consumer credit firms. HR professionals and anyone affected by SMCR are welcome.
