Financial regulation: what to do when things go wrong

Event date: 22/05/19
Location: Penningtons Manches, 125 Wood Street, London, EC2V 7AW

This seminar will consider best practice when a financial services firm is exposed as a result of wrongdoing, what duties it owes to the FCA and how these duties interact with the way it deals with its employees. A firm will want to investigate what has gone wrong and may well have to notify the FCA and/or take action against those implicated. We will consider:

  • approaches to interviews with employees: what you will need to provide to the FCA and what employment issues arise;
  • how FCA investigations and allegations of regulatory breach overlap with decisions as to suspension and disciplinary action;
  • when issues of whistleblowing arise, how to protect whistleblowers and to avoid detriment claims;
  • whether and when the firm should report the problem to the FCA;
  • the firm’s role when complaints are made about individuals;
  • issues around privilege and providing documents to the FCA;
  • reducing the scope for/the size of financial penalties and other regulatory action.
