Increasing interdependencies between the regulated and unregulated sectors and digitalisation has driven regulatory focus on operational resilience, of which outsourcing and third-party risk management are a key element.

The importance of firms effectively and efficiently managing outsourcing and third-party risk is crucial.

As the PRA’s then Deputy CEO observed in a May 2021 speech:

‘There is no bail out option if your firm is unable to function because of an operational incident. There is no operator of last resort function in Threadneedle Street.’

This webinar is suitable for legal, compliance and risk practitioners working in the UK financial services sector.

Attendees should be familiar with the key UK regulators in the financial services sector (the FCA, PRA and Bank of England) and scope of the regulatory regime.
