For senior managers, clarity on what constitutes ‘reasonable steps’ and how to evidence that the appropriate reasonable steps have been taken is proving to be a challenge for many firms.

This new virtual classroom seminar will provide practical guidance on the behaviours expected in respect of evidencing reasonable steps so that senior managers are comfortable and confident in managing their responsibilities.

The session is geared towards Senior Managers (SMFs) of FCA authorised and regulated firms, as well as Certified Compliance Functions, Heads of Compliance and Compliance Managers.

  • Introduction to reasonable steps
  • What the FCA tells us
