The FCA has said that it will ensure that the extended regime appropriately reflects the diverse business models operating in the UK market and is proportionate to the size and complexity of firms.

Given the fundamental changes that firms will need to make in advance of its implementation, it is widely acknowledged that they need to start preparing as soon as possible. Organised in response to widespread demand from the financial services industry, this summit is being held shortly after the publication of the FCA’s paper on how it plans to implement the extension of the SMR, which is due out before the end of the year.

  • Megan Butler, Director of Supervision (Investment, Wholesale and Specialists), Financial Conduct Authority

  • Carl Redfern, Compliance Director, Redland

  • Duty of responsibility and enforcement issues
  • Whistle-blowing and the SM regime
  • How will the introduction of the SMR impact the way you run your business in terms of HR practices, reporting lines and organisational structure?
  • SMR from the perspective of individual senior managers – what do they need to be aware of?
