Course overview


How will your firm withstand the regulator’s scrutiny? More importantly how will you perform personally? This webinar course will help you get prepared for the toughest of questions.

The regulator is about to knock on your door. Your firm and your senior team will likely come under intense scrutiny. Are you prepared?
For many firms this is a very stressful time, with senior executives and SMFs  feeling the pressure across all sectors. That’s because the PRA and FCA have focused their attention on the leaders of financial firms.
Many executives have already experienced this increased rigour, some very publicly.
  • Section 166s and enforcement actions are up on last year
  • The FCA has new Threshold Conditions and stronger statutory powers
  • Parent companies of regulated subsidiaries now face tougher controls
  • Judgement based supervision means it’s harder to predict regulator behaviour
  • And the repercussions of compliance failures are more severe
Surviving a regulator’s visit is now more difficult than ever. But with expert insight and smart preparation, you can make it much easier.
So join us for this fast-paced, highly practical two-hour executive briefing: This is a practical and interactive webinar, led by an expert in communication. Come prepared not just to listen, but question, contribute and learn.


Attending this course will enable you to;
  • Be prepared for anything
  • Learn how to answer tough questions
  • Identify your weaknesses to work on post the course
  • Avoid last minute stress and feel more prepared  
  • Use your resources more efficiently and know what to research


The PRA/FCA’s powers and approach:

  • What information is being requested of firms? Hot topics
  • A reminder of SMF  responsibilities and what is expected of you

Analysing high risk areas:

  • Corporate governance standards
  • Your business strategy: realistic, sustainable and clear?
  • Emphasis on risk management, not simply risk measurement
  • A brief look at over 60 (yes, sixty) conduct risks

Preparing for a regulatory interview:

  • Clearly articulating your business and its model
