The UK Financial Services Beyond BREXIT Summit, the 5th in this well-established series, is being held on the 28th October in central London.  Once again, we are delighted to be holding the summit in partnership with the City of London Corporation and TheCityUK. Catherine McGuinness, Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee at the Corporation, and Miles Celic, Chief Executive of TheCityUK, have both kindly agreed to speak. The objective of this conference, which is being held shortly before the UK is due to leave the EU on 31st October, either with or without a deal, is to look beyond BREXIT and examine the opportunities that lie ahead for the City and the wider FS industry.

The Climate Risk and Green Finance Regulatory Summit will examine how the Green Finance Strategy is going to be implemented by the UK Government and financial regulators. It will clarify the practical steps that financial institutions need to be taking now in order to ensure that they are prepared and fully compliant. It will also examine the new opportunities that this seismic shift in finance will offer.


The summit will bring together leading experts to provide a cross-cutting view of the emerging regulatory and ethical standards for data analytics, processing and management; to examine the data-related developments of most concern to regulators; and to discuss the fundamental changes that lie ahead. The event will also enable c-suite executives to benefit from real life case studies and best practices in the use, collection and sharing of data.

 


This summit will feature a keynote address from Mark Steward, Director of Enforcement and Market Oversight at the FCA who will provide much needed guidance and clarity on how you can reduce the likelihood of facing regulatory action and mitigate the impact of it on your organisation and senior managers. It will address the tools available to you when faced with enforcement action including the latest focus resolution procedures allowing you to challenge the severity of the penalty while admitting liability.
