Webinar Agenda

Webinar 1 – Tuesday 3rd November at 2pm
General insurance pricing practices

In this session we will be discussing the implications of the FCA’s recent Market Study final report MS18/1.3 in relation to general insurance pricing practices, and the associated Consultation Paper CP20/19.  FCA interim CEO Christopher Woolard has described the proposals as ‘probably [the] most radical shake-up of the general insurance industry in years’ and while the focus is on motor and household the potential implications for wider covers is clear.

Among other issues we will look at FCA’s proposals including non-differential renewal pricing,   enhanced product governance rules and measures to prevent insurance providers making it hard for consumers to stop a contract from auto-renewing and to make it easier for consumers to decline auto renewal for policies, both when they purchase and at renewal.

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

  • Identify the key implications in relation to proposed changes to general insurance pricing practices
  • Describe the FCA’s intentions behind non-differential renewal pricing, enhanced product governance rules and the possible implications in relation to instalments.
  • Identify whether the proposed measures relating to auto-renewing will impact their business

Webinar 2 – Thursday 5th November at 2pm
General insurance value measures

In this session we will be looking at how the FCA’s Policy Statement PS20/9, relating to general insurance value measures, might impact firms.  Specifically, we will explore how the FCA’s additional value measures product governance rules (intended to ensure firms’ products offer fair value to customers) could impact distributors and brokers acting as co-manufacturers.  This session is complementary to Webinar 1 on pricing practices and we recommend firms attend both sessions to get maximum benefit.

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

  • Explain the potential implications of the FCA’s proposed amendments to the product governance rules in relation to value measure
  • Identify whether these may impact the firm as either a distributor or co-manufacturer or both
  • Be aware of the link between value measures and pricing practices generally

Webinar session 3 – Tuesday 10th November
The latest guidance from the FCA in relation to customer vulnerability

In this session we will look at the FCA’s guidance consultation in relation to vulnerable customers and discuss what this guidance might mean for firms and the steps which firms can take to meet the requirements.  We will cover issues such as the circumstances which could lead to customers becoming vulnerable and the FCA’s four key drivers of vulnerability and look at practical consideration such as staff training and awareness, the customer journey and communications.

Linked to this is the issue of how firms communicate with clients in challenging times. Current circumstances are unprecedented, so this session will seek to discuss solutions to the current challenges and to help firms manage responsibilities.

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

  • Identify some circumstances which might lead to vulnerability
  • Describe the FCA’s drivers of vulnerability
  • Identify some practical measures to support vulnerable customers
  • Explain how to convey challenging messages in challenging times

Webinar session 4 – Thursday 12th November
Regulatory round-up

This is our usual regulatory round-up session looking at what else is current in regulation.  Among other topics, this will include the recent ‘Dear CEO’  letters relating to risk and CASS, information about the FCA’s RegData project, a quick look at the new financial services register, any impact on firms from the ban on motor finance discretionary commission models/changes to finance commission disclosure, the extension of the SM&CR deadline and a reminder about the information that will be required for the Directory.

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

  • Describe the implications of the FCA’s recent ‘Dear CEO’ letters in relation to risk and CASS
  • Identify the issues relating to the FCA’s new financial services register, the FCA’s Connect requirements and the impact of the RegData project
  • Identify and remedy any issues relating to the SM&CR deadline extension and the requirements for the FCA Directory
