FCA proposes extension of senior managers regime

HR professionals need to prepare for the rollout of accountability and conduct rules to the broader financial sector in 2018. 

In 2016, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) introduced the senior managers regime to enhance senior-level accountability in the financial sector. The regime initially applied to banks, building societies, credit unions and the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) – designated investment firms. It was followed swiftly by the new certification regime for other employees at these firms, and the conduct regime. The FCA has now proposed to extend these rules across the financial sector to include insurers, consumer credit companies and all regulated firms.
