The ARDL seminar programme continues with this seminar considering the extension of the Senior Managers and Certification Regimes (SMCR) to all firms regulated by the FCA and PRA, in the light of the issues that arose in its implementation within banks and insurers.

The speakers will focus on the new regime to be applied by the FCA to around 47,000 firms in 2018/19, firms, which include asset managers and the large consumer credit sector, and outline the challenges those firms face in implementing the new regime.  The ‘lessons learned’ from the SMCR’s implementation within banks that will be considered, including issues relating the allocation of responsibility amongst senior managers, tricky issues with regulatory references and employee exits, the practical implementation of the certification regime and the way in which the new conduct rules structure the way in which a firm must now think about misconduct.
