All FCA-authorised firms must train their staff on the FCA Conduct Rules, which set minimum standards of personal behaviour and make staff more accountable for their actions.

This short webinar will examine this key aspect of the Senior Managers & Certification Regime and look at the FCA’s heightened expectations of staff at all levels as reflected in the Consumer Duty.

It is suitable for staff at FCA-authorised firms at all levels.
