Press release – Alliance welcomes discussion with FCA on the extension of SMCR

This morning, the Chartered Body Alliance was delighted to welcome David Blunt, Head of Conduct Specialists at the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), to discuss the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) with an audience of individuals working across financial services, who are already operating under the SMCR, and those who are due to be brought into it later this year[1].

Joining David Blunt at this breakfast seminar was an esteemed panel of experts from across the Wealth and Securities, Insurance and Banking professions; including Ian Cornwall (Director of Regulation at the Personal Investment Management & Financial Advice Association), Jeremy Fraser (Solicitor and former Council member of the Chartered Banker Institute) and Steve Jenkins (Development Director at CII).

The session, which took place under the Chatham House rule, was organised by the Alliance as an opportunity to share experiences, best practice, and to discuss concerns and improvements that can be made whilst the FCA is working towards the regime’s extension.

This event is just one of a series of activities that the Alliance will be undertaking over the course of this year, covering the areas of professionalism, diversity and ethics in financial services.
