  • Surgeries – an opportunity to discuss specific issues facing your business and the needs of your clients;
  • Supervisory workshops – focus on the subject of ‘Professional Governance’ for the investment sector and ‘Delivering fair customer outcomes’ for the General Insurance sector;
  • Culture and governance General Insurance – focus on the FCA’s expectations of firms, feedback on thematic and supervision work and how this is used to assess culture and governance; and
  • Chairman’s lunch.

The programme started in March 2016 in the South West and will end in March 2017 in the North West. The full programme and information can be found here.
