SM&CR training

During a recent workshop, the FCA commented on SM&CR training.  They do not believe that some e-learning or short generic training meets their requirements.

We believe that this is primarily a reference to the need for all staff to understand the intention of the SM&CR to move firms to a culture of accountability at all levels. Accordingly, Conduct Rules training should include the opportunity for individuals to identify how these apply to their own organisation and, in particular, to their role within the organisation.

Our View

We have created a suite of tools and guides to assist firms in implementing the SM&CR.

In particular, we have a Conduct Rules training presentation that we believe addresses the issues that the FCA has raised.
