With the significant increase in the number of firms the FCA regulate, unless you are a Pillar 1 organisation (large banking or insurance institution), far more of their regulatory and oversight work is carried out at a distance. They may be looking at your company without you knowing. The first you become aware of their interest maybe as part of a thematic review, a request for information or a Dear CEO letter. How you respond to their initial communications sets the scene for the interaction that follows.
At the centre of a successful interaction is your ability to portray confidence, have a keen attention to detail, recognise the importance of documentation and to think like the regulator. Firms that do not consider FCA interactions until they happen leave themselves open to rushed responses, significantly increased stress levels and a tangible drop in productivity.
After the course, you can be confident of returning to the office with a much clearer understanding of which systems and processes need attention, allowing you to efficiently allocate valuable time, effort and resource.
