With less than 6 months to go before SM&CR comes into effect, time is running out for senior managers and members of core and *enhanced firms to bring themselves up to date with what this means for the governance and culture within the firm, along with their own individual responsibilities and accountabilities.

This practical 3½ hour workshop, underpinned by PIMFA latest guidance on SM&CR for firms, steers clear of offering you a ‘do’s and don’ts’ lists of the new regime, rather it tackles, through practical scenarios and case studies, a simple, clear and proportionate approach to SM&CR that will help your firm achieve a smooth transition into the new regime.

*If you are enhanced firm going through SMCR, the trainer will spend an additional hour (after 13.00) with you discussing how to meet your regulatory requirements.

Conduct Rules Training: TRAIN THE TRAINER

SM&CR also involves the application of Conduct Rules. Firms must ensure all staff members working in financial services must be trained and aware of the rules that relate to professional conduct.

If you need to train your staff on the Conduct Rules, but don’t have the time or knowledge to prepare a professional training course, there’s no need worry, as PIMFA, in association with CityHR, are offering a unique Train the Trainer workshop in September 2019.

We recognise that training takes time, planning and resources to deliver, and have created the new Train the Trainer workshop, to help provide trainers with the knowledge and tools to deliver Conduct Rules training across your organisation, including a comprehensive tool kit, that comprises of PowerPoint slides, training notes, FCA produced SM&CR explainer videos, practical case studies, organisational branded delegate handouts, and more.

If you’d like to attend, or interested in further details, please get in get in touch.
