Financial services 40-minute briefings

March 04, 2020 | 08:50 - 09:30 GMT

In the latest financial services 40-minute briefing webinar, lawyers and compliance professionals from our financial services group consider the current state of play in the retail sector.

In particular, this webinar will focus on open finance, a key strategic aim of the FCA, which is intended to create a digital marketplace that will benefit UK financial services and lead to the emergence of new customised financial propositions for customers. Also, the webinar will consider some of the common pitfalls that wholesale institutions may find themselves in as they continue their search for additional revenue streams from retail and corporate clients. The webinar finishes with our thinking on the retail conduct risk agenda, PRIIPS and the treatment of vulnerable consumers.

  • Open finance: Our thoughts on the FCA’s call for input

  • Conduct risk in the retail space
