Graham Finlay, Strategic and Technical Sales, and Karl Dines, Head of Business Consultancy, SimplyBiz
It’s still in the consultation stage, but the Consumer Duty is due to become rules in July this year. That’s only six months away.
The impact of the rules will be significant, affecting many aspects of a financial advice firm, from the charging structure to the Centralised Investment Proposition. It is also creating a new Principle (12) and will go further than, and build on, Principles 6 and 7 (those relating to TCF and communications).
Graham and Karl will highlight the key elements from the consultation and discuss the potential impact on financial advice firms in the UK.
