The FCA has so far spent more than £150,000 on its regional events for investment, general insurance and mortgage firms.
The total cost of the Live and Local events so far is £154,204. The events include sessions on compliance and professional governance for advisers, and industry roundtables. There are also one-to-one “surgeries” with an FCA supervisor.
The cost of the events in the south-west of England was £26,477, Northern Ireland £20,065, the north-east £20,860, East Midlands £30,270, Wales £18,165, and Scotland £38,367.
The cost of Live and Local events held in East Anglia and the West Midlands, which were held in October and November, have not yet been added to the FCA’s event costs schedule.
London is hosting Live and Local events this month, while Yorkshire and the Humber, the south-west and the north-west, will host events in 2017.
