Financial Conduct Authority chief executive designate Martin Wheatley will be the keynote speaker at Aifa’s annual gala dinner in November.

The FCA will replace the FSA early next year. The dinner is being held on November 18.

Aifa policy director Chris Hannant says: “In the final days before implementation of the retail distribution review this will be a timely opportunity to hear from Martin Wheatley about how the regulator will assist advisers with the transition.

“The event will also provide Martin with the chance to outline how he sees the regulatory environment shaping up under his leadership of the FCA. The introduction of a new regulator offers an opportunity to reconsider key issues, such as funding, liability for advisers and how supervision takes place in the industry.

Last week, the Government announced Wheatley is to lead an inquiry into whether the setting of the Libor rate should be regulated by the FCA.

    “Last week, the Government announced Wheatley is to lead an inquiry into whether the setting of the Libor rate should be regulated by the FCA”.

    The overseeing body, as per the BBA website is the Foreign Exchange and Money Markets Committee, which is a group of active market practitioners including representatives from banks, the money markets, corporate treasurers and exchanges. This body oversees the rate setting procedures, and scrutinises the rates for accuracy.

    Who regulates them? Perhaps they should be looked at?
