Part 1 – Consumer Duty – what does it all mean and how does it fit in with research and suitability processes?

1 min read 6 Oct 22

Date: Thursday 6th October

Time: 3.30pm – 5.00pm (including up to 30 minutes Q&A)

Session outline:
In this session, hosted by Pru’s Vince Smith Hughes and Andy Nash, they’ll be joined by special guests Mark Polson and Alison Gay from the lang cat, a leading independent platform, pensions and investment consultancy. Mark is a well-known contributor on many aspects of the advice profession and has some unique and forthright views on the new Consumer Duty and what needs to be done.  Alison worked until recently at the FCA advising the independent Statutory Panels, which were involved in the consumer duty from its earliest days.

They’ll be looking at what the Consumer Duty means for advisers/advisory firms overall, and what else might be needed when it comes to research and suitability. For example, how does it affect any Centralised Investment Proposition (CIP) and Centralised Retirement Proposition (CRP) you have in place?
