Webinar Agenda

WEBINAR 1 – TUESDAY 20th APRIL AT 10AM
FCA SUPERVISORY FOCUS – A PRACTICAL GUIDE

This session provides an insight into the supervisory focus of the Regulator in relation to the General Insurance Intermediaries portfolio.

We will consider some of the key areas outlined by the FCA in their recent portfolio letter, how their supervisory focus links to the delivery of their overall objectives and to recent regulatory changes, giving consideration to some of the key actions that firms should take in response.

In addition, we will have a look at the recent Dear CEO letter in respect of client money handling arrangements and consider not only what this means for firms with client money permissions, but also how those firms who can operate on a risk transfer only basis can identify some of the key considerations that affect premium collection.

By the end of this session delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the key areas of supervisory focus areas for the FCA
  • Explain how these are aimed at driving good customer outcomes
  • Identify how these areas of focus could impact their firm and any actions that they need to take

WEBINAR 2 – THURSDAY 22nd APRIL AT 10AM
THE ROLE AND IMPORTANCE OF PRODUCT GOVERNANCE

This session provides a practical view of the importance of Product Governance for both a manufacturer and a distributor and the role that it plays in providing assurances in a range of regulatory initiatives. 

We will consider the key elements of an effective product governance framework including product design, ongoing monitoring and review and the types of MI that support that oversight whilst highlighting how recent regulatory changes link back to the implementation of an effective product governance framework and processes. 

By the end of this session delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the key features of a product governance framework
  • Explain how effective product governance processes and controls can mitigate the risk of customer harm
  • Explain the FCA’s intentions in relation to pricing practices, value and distribution chain and the impact on product governance.

WEBINAR SESSION 3 – TUESDAY 27th APRIL AT 10AM
BUSINESS RESILIENCE

In this session we explore what business resilience means in real terms, firstly, taking a look at the FCA’s concerns and findings following its recent financial resilience surveys. We will also consider operational resilience and the role of an effective risk management framework in building a sustainable and resilient business.

Finally, we will look at planning for the worst-case scenario and the FCA’s views on wind-down planning.

By the end of this session delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the implications of the findings of the FCA’s most recent financial resilience surveys and explain how this increases regulatory focus, particularly in respect of client money arrangements.
  • Describe the benefits of effective risk management and explain the positive outcomes for firms and their customers from implementation of an appropriate and proportionate risk management framework.
