Therefore the MGAA invite you to join our webinar where you will hear from Sara Ager from GreenKite with John Needham from PKF Littlejohn, as the main speakers, and have the opportunity to ask questions.    If you would like to submit a question prior to the session please send here.

It has taken us decades to consider giving up the classical signature. Suddenly, the situation generated by the coronavirus pandemic requires us to even give up on paper records. The gains are significant, for both sides: for organisations, they are measured in processing speed, and for consumers in the convenience of solving various problems from the comfort of their home.

At the same time, digital transformation is not a new topic. But how will the post-pandemic business landscape accelerate this vision and deliver it to day-to-day practice in Insurance and the MGA business?

Learning Objectives
By the end of the session, delegates will:
  - Have a clearer understanding of how the paradigm of the old way of doing business is being shaped by the coronavirus crisis.
  - Have explored and will be able to recognise how customer experience will drive digital transformation.
  - Be able to identify portals, platforms, channels and systems that deliver on post-pandemic customer expectations.

The FCA Business Plan - A Compliant MGA Perspective
Speaker:  Kenneth Underhill , Director
Date:

Every year, the FCA release their annual business plan in early April. It sets the scene for the regulatory road map for MGAs for the year to come and often beyond that.

Previous plans have signalled the onset of regulatory changes including the Insurance Distribution Directive, Senior Managers & Certification Regime and the reviews into pricing and vulnerable customers amongst many other changes.

Hidden within the 2018/9 and 2019/20 plans have also been the initial signals on value measures, vulnerable customers and culture, none of which appear yet to be at the end of the diagnostic cycle.

Kenneth Underhill will look at the 2020/1 FCA Business Plan and consider what the reality means for MGAA members, using previous plans and outcomes as examples.

Learning Objectives:
Members will have a clear understanding of what the 2020/1 FCA Business Plan means for their firm and the actions they will need to take to begin planning within their Regulatory and Compliance teams and ensure their business is prepared for any likely actions, information requests and changes that are implemented.
