On 25th January 2024, we hosted the final of three Horizon Scanning webinars, which looked at what's coming down the regulatory track for 2024, with a focus on the Consumer Credit and Insurance sectors.
The objective of these webinars was to:
- highlight the key regulatory initiatives and reforms hitting firms and compliance departments in 2024;
- to share what we believe are key FCA priorities and any common themes we are seeing in FCA communications derived from our collective experience of working across multiple sectors; and
- to help enable participants to earmark resources to prepare for regulatory initiatives in good order.
The agenda below highlighted the main areas of focus for this webinar, in addition to other items covered from the FCA's regulatory initiative grid.
- Credit Information Market Study
- Tailored Support Guidance Consultation/Debt advice rules review
- Post-implementation review of Vulnerable Customer Guidance
- Evaluation of GI pricing practices
This webinar is relevant for all firms within the Consumer Credit and Insurance space, including, credit brokers, leasers, lenders, funeral planners, insurance intermediaries, mortgage providers and claims management providers.
