Webinar Background

On 27th February 2024, we hosted a Prudential Webinar, focussed on Payment Services and looking specifically at what's coming down the regulatory track for 2024.

2023 was a busy year for Payment Services 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)
  • Enhancing risk management and liquidity frameworks
  • Implementing harms analysis and risk quantification methodologies
  • Developing stress testing approaches
  • Responding to FCA feedback in respect of wind-down planning

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

  • highlighted the key prudential initiatives and reforms hitting firms and compliance departments in 2024;
  • shared what we believe are key FCA priorities and any common themes we are seeing; and
  • helped enable participants to earmark resources to prepare for regulatory initiatives in good order.
