Since the announcement of the Edinburgh Reforms in 2022, the UK government has made progress on an assortment of measures spanning financial services regulation, with more developments expected in 2024. Though tabled initially as an ambitious suite of reforms, many of the proposals have not been particularly radical in reality. A recent Treasury Committee report found that completed work has had little economic impact, and that many of the workstreams are not true reforms. 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, London partner Rob Moulton and Knowledge Management Counsel Charlotte Collins discuss anticipated developments under the Edinburgh Reforms in 2024. They also explore whether the Treasury Committee report represents a fair assessment, which changes qualify as truly ambitious, and the potential impact of the general election on further regulatory reforms.
