The FCA’s proposed Consumer Duty – implications for investment management firms


Preparations for the introduction of a new Consumer Duty by the FCA are now well advanced. The second consultation paper, published last December, gives a clearer outline of the intended scope of the Duty and its associated obligations. Given its intentionally broad application to retail and wholesale business across the product distribution chain, and the current proposed implementation period of just nine months, firms should begin considering how the Duty may impact their business as early as possible.

This webinar will consider the structure of the Duty, its likely application to investment management firms and the steps firms will need to take to operationalise the proposed rules and guidance.
