The FCA in its recent Dear CEO letter to its LLMI portfolio lists as the first key driver of harm “Financial Resilience and Orderly Wind Down”, and as a result indicates that this will be a focus of attention through November 2021. 

This FCA letter has focused attention on the need for LLMI’s to ensure that their wind down plans are both up to date and robust.

  • Provided some practical and real life insights into preparing a wind down plan including:
    • Governance
    • Scenarios
    • Practical considerations in a wind-down plan
