Workshops and Live Webinars

We are delighted to run the first general insurance compliance workshops and live webinars in the UK that were accredited by our industry’s professional body, the Chartered Insurance Institute. The workshops and live webinars typically have three or four main sessions, led by an appropriate expert from the UKGI team, covering the latest regulatory hot topics.

The booking form for our next series of workshops live webinars is now available – see below for the details of the topics that will be covered, the learning objectives for each webinar and where to find the booking form.

Our next events

Booking is now open for our September pop-up live webinars

In response to requests from member firms and in the light of the FCA’s second ‘Dear CEO’ letter on client money and risk transfer, UKGI will be running two ‘pop-up’ live webinars to take firms through the issues raised in the letter, these fall outside of our normal CII accredited workshop webinars.

As always delegates will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance or ask questions during the webinar which will either be covered at the time or followed up with individually afterwards.

Webinar Agenda

WEBINAR 1 – TUESDAY 7th september AT 10AM
Client money and the cass requirements

This webinar will walk firms through the concerns and issues raised by the FCA in the ‘Dear CEO’ letter and will specifically cover:

Governance and oversight

  • Senior management governance and oversight
  • The application of client money rules to firm’s business model
  • Oversight of third parties, including due diligence

Operational considerations

  • Client money calculations and reconciliations
  • Appropriate withdrawal of commission
  • The segregation of client money
  • Co-mingling risk transfer money with client money
  • Client money audits
  • Client money bank accounts and acknowledgement letters for all client money accounts.
  • Using client money for the purposes it’s intended
  • Reviewing your firm’s permission

The FCA

  • Action the FCA might take
  • The FCA’s next steps

WEBINAR 2 – THURSDAY 9th september AT 10AM
Tobas, risk transfer and premium collection

In its recent ‘Dear CEO’ letter the FCA also specifically referenced risk transfer arrangements and the issues seen within firms around non-compliance with insurer risk transfer requirements; we are therefore running a second webinar focusing on risk transfer. 

Remember, if you rely on risk transfer but fail to comply with insurer ToBA requirements you could, by default, be handling client money and without the requisite FCA permission you’ll be in breach.

This webinar will look at the comments made by the FCA in the ‘Dear CEO’ letter and will specifically cover:

Governance and oversight

  • Senior management governance and oversight

Operational considerations

  • Risk transfer and why it is important (whether you have client money permissions or not)
  • Maintaining an accurate register of risk transfer agreements
  • Discharge of fiduciary duties and a firm’s obligations to its customers
  • Market security throughout the distribution chain

The FCA

  • Implications of non-compliance with insurer ToBA requirements
  • Action the FCA might take
