The FCA Handbook is changing! The need for firms to continue to work directly off a static copy of the FCA's UK financial regulations is coming to an end. These changes mean that the traditional approach of transposing regulations into spreadsheets or other documents to track actions and log compliance that has been time-consuming, inefficient and no longer fit for purpose - will also be come a thing of the past.

What's the New Approach.
Since 2017 The FCA has been working with RegTech firms to improve the way in which UK Financial Regulations are distributed, recorded and tracked and both our speakers where heavily involved in this process.

By linking business objectives to risks, communication and understanding is enhanced within a firm and an organisation has a better likelihood of achieving its objectives - the ultimate goal of risk management.
This guide sets out the common practise undertaken by risk teams, and then looks at the importance of linking business objectives to risk and how to accomplish this.
The guide also explores the resulting risk types and how they enhance communication between the business and the risk teams.

Richard Pike recently presented in the Innovation in Risk Management Stream at Risk EMEA in London. During this well received presentation, Richard discussed the current risk oversight challlenges facing financial institutions prior to putting forward a new approach to Risk Oversight with a practical guide and case study.
The process of compliance oversight is relatively simple in theory but financial institutions have historically made it extremely complex and unwieldy.
In order to root out the inefficiencies and make the process more effective a straightforward re-thinking of the practise is needed. This doesn’t mean pulling up the roots and starting again, but defining and mapping the oversight requirements and process as part of defining the core compliance requirements. In short ‘design in good oversight’.
This approach will support oversight becoming a standard item and the days of running around looking for old spreadsheets, presentations and emails should become a thing of the past.
