At a recent FTAdviser event, the Financial Conduct Authority's proposals about duty of care were the main topic of discussion.
The briefing, hosted at the Financial Times in London, brought together speakers and attendees from across the wealth management and advice industry.
Sir John Redwood of Charles Stanley gave his thoughts on the outlook for global markets this year and whether client concerns about a recession are founded.
Then Sebastien Petsas, director, regulatory consulting at Duff & Phelps, moved the discussion onto the FCA’s duty of care consultation paper and what the regulator expects from advisers when it comes to duty of care and suitability.
And advisers gathered at the event discussed what their concerns were about the duty of care proposals, as well as how they deliver financial solutions that meet client needs.
