More than 1,000 advisers attend FCA event tour

Over 1,250 financial advisers turned up to the FCA’s series of regional events, Live and Local, last year, the regulator has revealed.

In its annual report this morning, the regulator says that it is continuing to engage with advisers through events including Live and Local, which include supervisory workshops, firm surgeries, roundtables and chairman’s lunches at a number of locations around the country.

The FCA notes that these events were “well attended” over the last year as it allowed the regulator to discuss the findings of its work on financial advice suitability with planners.

The regulator also held more forward-looking sessions on topics from Mifid II to the Insurance Distribution Directive at Peresonal Finance Society events, covering more than 3,350 advisers.

The FCA writes: “As part of our supervision work we engage with advisers to encourage good practice in the advice and services they offer to retail consumers and ensure we understand how the market is working.”

    From what I hear from my DA colleagues, non-attendance is not a wise choice.

  2. They are really good and worth attending. I’d like the FCA to consider opening up the eligable attendees so that not only directly regulated and firm principles can attend, but ALL advisers.
    That way advisers at the coalface can hear from the FCA (Mark Gould and his collegaues) directly without the filtering which occurs via compliance managers and network bosses.
