Speaker: Rory Percival, Chartered Financial Planner with 460 CII credits

Monday 18th November 2019

A pizza buffet will be served at 5.30pm for a 6pm start.

Where: Pizza Express, 32 Earl St, Maidstone ME14 1PF

An informal session on the subject of suitability and the FCA’s continued focus on this topic including recent clarifications in PROD and MiFID II. Rory has spent more than a decade trying to knock down a ‘wall of myths’ about what the regulator requires. Poor compliance and ‘over-compliance’ remain prevalent. Having heard plenty about DB transfers recently, one area that deserves some focus is switching in general and between platforms in particular.

By the end of this session delegates will be able to:

  • Outline the regulatory framework for switching
  • Identify the issues pertinent to suitability
  • Describe a process for platform selection
  • Understand the relationship between PROD and MiFID II
