Join us for our latest regulatory update on 29 November 2018, where we will be discussing the importance of good product governance and its impact on the financial services industry.
MiFID II presented the largest regulatory change to financial services in a decade, and one of its key components has been to expand and formalise the existing UK product governance regime. The revised approach focuses on the activities of both manufacturers and distributors of products, thereby bringing the entire product lifecycle within scope. We will discuss the current practices in relation to product development and distribution and how senior management can stay on top of these processes to ensure they are complying with regulations and acting in the best interest of their customers.
We will also discuss the key challenges which lie ahead for firms in relation to product governance including information sharing between manufacturers and distributors of financial products and services.
The session will conclude with an update on the PRA’s and FCA’s expectations for firms in managing climate change risks.
We look forward to welcoming you to this event.
