The FCA expects all firms to have a deep understanding of their market abuse risk, and build control frameworks that are both proportionate and effective however recent market abuse reviews by consultancy firm Bovill in wealth firms indicate they are struggling to properly assess, understand and articulate the specific market abuse risks inherent in their business.
In this 2 hour interactive, online training course leading consultants Bovill reveal where wealth firms are falling foul of regulatory expectations and what they need to implement effective policies and procedures to control market abuse risks posed by remote working.
By attending this two-hour refresher session you will be able to:
• Grasp what the FCA expects from you firm to prevent market abuse in 2021
• Understand where wealth firms fall short of FCA expectations
• Recognise common market abuse risk areas in your firm
• Improve monitoring ongoing compliance risk
As with all our PIMFA live online learning sessions we provide ‘surgery’ time at the end of each session with the trainer to support you applying what you’ve learnt immediately back into your firm.
