Compliance Monitoring Workshop


This workshop is designed to be delivered in-house to a Compliance and Risk team at a Financial Services firm regulated by the FCA, under the IPRU-INV (MIFID or CAD exempt), BIPRU or IFPRU regimes. It is structured to enable attendees to match the firm's compliance monitoring activities to three specific areas:

  • the expectations of the FCA of a firm operating within its regime;
  • the expectations of the FCA of a firm operating with the permissions for which the firm is authorised; and
  • checking the firm's business model is aligned to its compliance infrastructure.

Prior to the workshop, the firm will deliver the key elements of its compliance and governance infrastructure to enable MPAC to tailor the workshop to the firm's business model, enabling the attendees to maximise the benefit from this training.

The workshop will be split into two half day sessions, exploring all the facets of the firm's business model and how the compliance team can construct an effective monitoring programme to maximise the awareness of the Risk and Compliance functions of the management of the firm's compliance and regulatory risks.
