THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar assesses progress and next steps for strengthening culture and conduct within the financial services industry - focusing on accountability, diversity and reform of governance structures.
It is timed as the industry prepares for the extension of the Senior Management and Certification Regime (SM&CR), with wide-reaching implications for senior management accountability as well as significant implementation costs for the industry, and comes as the FCA prepares its policy statement on how firms and individuals will transition to the Regime. Delegates will discuss how it can best balance providing businesses in the sector with the long term flexibility to meet future challenges, while also improving consumer confidence and public trust in financial services.
Further sessions assess progress and next steps for increasing diversity in financial services, in the context of the Women in Finance Charter, and following the launch of Treasury Committee’s Women in Finance inquiry - which seeks to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services industry.
The agenda also examines options for reforming governance structures in the financial services sector, in particular shareholder influence and directors’ duties, following the Government’s recently announced corporate governance reforms, which are due to be implemented in June 2018.
