Connected With Latham

Feb 19, 2024

With the UK financial services regulators due to publish Policy Statements to their consultations on diversity and inclusion (D&I) this year, conduct and culture remain high on the regulators’ agenda and connect closely to their other regulatory priorities. The regulators have proposed new D&I reporting and disclosure requirements for larger financial services firms, and the FCA is consulting on new guidance on non-financial misconduct. Although final rules are not expected until the second half of this year, firms should consider now how to meet regulatory expectations. 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 partners Rob Moulton and Nell Perks highlight the steps firms can take to improve their culture ahead of upcoming regulatory changes. They also discuss the impact of the regulators’ proposals on establishing D&I strategies and targets, as well as how firms should approach the FCA’s proposed guidance on non-financial misconduct.
