As part of the FCA’s continued focus on retail markets, updates to several key regimes are due to progress over the next year. In addition to further implementation of the FCA’s Consumer Duty, the government plans to present detailed proposals on modernising the consumer credit regime, develop proposals to address the “advice gap”, and bring in a new UK retail disclosure framework to replace the PRIIPs regime. In this episode of Connected With Latham, the latest in a 10-part series complementing Latham’s “10 Key Focus Areas for UK-Regulated Financial Services Firms in 2024” report, partner Rob Moulton and counsel Becky Critchley discuss the FCA’s recent work in relation to the Consumer Duty, including what is expected of boards, the proposed new UK Consumer Composite Investment regime, and work to modernise the UK consumer credit framework.
