On 18 April the FCA published several important documents which, overall, aim to provide greater clarity about how it operates and more transparency about its decision-making.
We give our views on the key documents and important themes below with the option to link through to more detail on particular sectors.
The product of an event and consultation which 184 firms and individuals participated in, the FCA's stated Mission is "to serve the public interest through the objectives given to it by Parliament".
The Mission document explains: how this will impact on the strategic decisions the FCA takes; the intervention framework behind those decisions; the rationale for its work; and how it chooses the right tools for the job.
In the words of the FCA Chief Executive Andrew Bailey:
"The Mission gives firms and consumers greater clarity about how and why we prioritise, protect and intervene in financial markets."
Key initiatives include:
For a summary of key planned activities under each of the above, please click here.
For further detail on these and other planned activities and priorities in each of the FCA's seven market sectors please click here.
Further publications are planned over the next year providing detail about the impact of the FCA's Mission on its main activities of authorising and supervising firms, taking enforcement action and encouraging competition and influencing market design.
With economic conditions indicating higher costs and falling profits and increasing use of technology, firms may be more vulnerable to financial crime. Prevailing low interest rates may mean consumers are more attracted to scams to try and achieve better returns.
Key planned activities include:
Ensuring firms' culture, behaviours and governance deliver appropriate outcomes for consumers and markets remains a priority. Senior managers have a crucial role in making sure that their firm's business strategy, processes, people and policies support and reinforce the culture they want. Individual accountability and remuneration are significant drivers of change and so continue to be a focus for the FCA.
FinTech has the potential to enhance competition, reduce costs and improve service but if poorly managed it can also bring new risks. Regulation needs to keep pace with change.
Cyber attacks are increasing; firms need to improve their capability to defend against such attacks and respond quickly to them. Use of new technologies as well as outsourcing (increasingly to a narrow pool of providers) increases the risk that if a provider experiences an outage higher numbers of customers will be affected.
The FCA wants to see existing customers benefit from increased competition and innovation and kept well informed, rather than being deprioritised in favour of new customers. Issues occur differently in each area and so are addressed on a sector basis.
Key planned activities are covered under each of the sectors but include:
The FCA Mission proposes to focus particularly on vulnerable customers who are more susceptible to harm and less able to represent their own interests. Technological change can mean they have less access to financial services.
