Consumer Duty - possibly the most seismic package of measures from the Financial Conduct Authority to affect all regulated firms. 

Are you on track for having your implementation plans in place by the end of October? Are you clear about the practicalities of Consumer Duty, and what you and your business needs to do to meet the requirements? 

To help with all of this, M&G Wealth will be running a series of three seminars in October looking not just at the What, but the How of Consumer Duty.

Part 1 - What does it all mean and how does it fit in with research and suitability process? 
Thursday 6 October - 3.30pm- 5pm

With special guests Mark Polson and Alison Gay from the lang cat - a leading independent platform, pensions and investment consultancy - we'll revisit the new rules and guidance and consider changes that might needs to be made to the existing process. We'll also look at what else might be needed when it comes to research and suitability.
