Digital Media & FCA Financial Promotion Requirements
Social media is being used to market financial services more and more frequently, but the marketing channels and opportunities being created by the growth of social media do not neatly fit with FCA marketing expectations.
The FCA has expressed concerns that firms are not giving adequate thought to complying with the requirements of the Conduct of Business Rules and that investors could be misled by noncompliant financial promotions.
This course is essential for those who are advising FCA-regulated firms about achieving compliance with the FCA marketing requirements as applied to social media channels. A basic understanding of the FCA marketing requirements as set out in the Conduct of Business Rules would be helpful but not essential.
