This event will be run as a webinar. 

In light of the UK’s forthcoming withdrawal from the EU, and ten years after the financial crisis, which led to an overhaul of financial regulation, now is the right time to consider whether the current regulatory framework is fit for purpose and what the future of conduct regulation could look like.

Currently, there are many, often overlapping, requirements deriving from EU legislation and the FCA’s own requirements. Put together, these can create a ‘patchwork’ effect of regulation that can often lead to worse outcomes, with competing burdens on firms and increased confusion for consumers of insurance and long terms savings products.

A regulatory framework fit for the future of UK financial services could involve a streamlining of regulatory requirements, stronger consumer protection and communications, promoting healthy competition across the industry and improving UK competitiveness.

This webinar will consider the opportunities and challenges of conduct regulation, the FCA’s rule book, and the possibilities for shaping the UK’s financial services regulatory landscape of the future.
