We’ve now passed the implementation date for the Senior Management and Certification Regime. At this stage, it’s vital that firms turn their attention from implementation of SMCR to living and breathing it in the Boardroom, focusing on evidencing their governance, oversight and as Senior Managers.

This in-person seminar will be relevant to Senior Managers and Board level teams of FCA authorised and regulated firms and for those who offer compliance legal support to their clients for financial services.

What You Will Learn

This course will cover the following:

  • FCA rules and expectations of the Boards of FCA Authorised and regulated firms
  • Why the culture of your organisation matters
  • How to ensure that the Board understand their responsibilities in respect of the oversight of compliance

  • How to plan an appropriate compliance sub-agenda for your Board Meetings
  • How to undertake valuable compliance discussions within a Board meeting
  • How to appropriately minute Board meeting discussions about compliance
  • Common mistakes made by the Boards of FCA authorised and regulated firms
