Webinar Background

On 5th March 2024, we hosted our Prudential Webinar, focussed on Capital Markets. This webinar looked at what's coming down the regulatory track for 2024.

2023 was a busy year for Investment Firms in terms of keeping on top of their prudential and regulatory reporting requirements. We have worked with numerous firms helping them with:

  • Assessments of the adequacy of financial resources (capital and liquidity)
  • Refining their regulatory reporting processes
  • Developing robust risk and harm analysis frameworks
  • Enhancing stress testing and recovery plans
  • Responding to FCA feedback in respect of wind-down planning
  • Developing more efficient group and capital structures

Looking towards what's to come in 2024, we thought it would be useful to put together a webinar that will:

  • highlight the key prudential 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; and
  • to help enable participants to earmark resources to prepare for regulatory initiatives in good order.
