Asset Management Market Study: Regulatory impact of the FCA interim report

21 February 2017

By Amanda Rowland and Andrew Strange

The Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) Asset Management market study interim report has been of particular concern to asset management clients since it was published in November 2016. In this video Andrew Strange, a director in our Financial Services Risk and Regulation Centre of Excellence, speaks to Amanda Rowland, UK Asset and Wealth Management Regulation partner to reflect on some of the client conversations we have been having around the key regulatory themes in the report. These include the complexity and diversity of the market which Amanda feels has not been fully represented in the interim report, and the fact that active investment remains extremely important. 

Amanda also identifies a range of unintended consequences and firm-specific nuances in the interim report which need to be drawn out. These include the wider a focus on governance, transparency, the operational challenge of single fees and the wider ongoing regulatory agenda.
