The Financial Services Act which comes into force from 1 April 2013 will implement the Government’s commitment to strengthen the financial regulatory structure in the UK. This Act, together with accompanying secondary legislation, will bring important changes to the way firms are regulated in the UK.
Thomson Reuters Accelus are running a one hour webinar examining the new Threshold Conditions (TCs), which are an important part of this new regulatory structure.This is a must attend webinar as the new TCs have very little in common with their predecessors. For example, the redrafted TCs have introduced The Business Model Threshold Condition which is completely new and has no parallel under the current regulatory framework.
The new regulatory bodies, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) will be proactive in ensuring that business across financial services and markets is conducted in a way that advances the interests of all users and participants. If your firm does not meet the new TCs it will have its authorisation withdrawn and will not be able to take part in regulated activity.
These TCs mark a seismic shift in the regulatory landscape. Firms need to plan now for how they will satisfy them.
