Financial Aspects of FCA Compliance for GI brokers

Thursday, 20 May 2021
12:00 pm – 1:15 pm
    • Branko Bjelobaba FCII , Branko Ltd

In this comprehensive and interactive webinar, Branko Bjelobaba FCII will focus on the critical financial aspects of FCA rules - overall business solvency (compliance with adequate resources Threshold Condition 2.4), professional indemnity requirements/limits/issues (including covid cover), and the onerous client money handling rules under CASS 5.

The FCA has had deep concern with brokers’ financial resilience and has issued several surveys on this plus client money handling arrangements culminating with the Dear CEO letter of 30 September 2020.

By the end of this webinar attendees will have gained an insight into:

  • What are the FCA’s concerns – the financial resilience and client money surveys;
  • Solvency and meeting adequate resources TC2.4;
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance – issues and limits;
  • CASS 5 – what is client money, how Risk Transfer can go wrong, what are monies held at third parties and what actually do you need to do to comply (including audits).

This talk is relevant to general insurance brokers/intermediaries, their insurers and any other market participants. Joining instructions will be sent out to participants shortly before the Zoom webinar begins.
