The FCA’s regulatory focus is increasingly on prevention of harm, rather than simply acting when things go wrong. This talk will look at a range of the FCA’s latest initiatives in this area, setting out the regulator’s expectations in relation to:
- The design and oversight of insurance products
- Pricing and ‘value’
- Value in the light of Covid-19
- Vulnerable customers
By the end of the event, delegates will be better able to both understand and assess the impact on their own businesses of the FCA’s current expectations of firms in relation to the fair treatment of customers and their approach to product design and oversight
