In this free webinar, we explored the following:

  • Responding to FCA requests for information: Often, FCA information requests will appear seemingly out of the blue. Our Payments Services team knows what the FCA is looking for with these requests and we can assist you with the correct response, both in terms of tone and content so as not to attract further attention.

  • Understanding the FCA Landscape: Gain insights into the FCA's role, structure, and objectives, providing you with a foundational understanding of their expectations.

  • Building Productive Relationships: Learn how to foster a positive and proactive relationship with the FCA, enhancing communication channels and collaboration.

  • Optimising Reporting: Discover best practices for accurate and timely reporting, reducing the risk of discrepancies and easing the regulatory reporting process.
