Read it now: GDPR 'challenge' & more PII woes

General Data Protection Regulation rules still pose a major challenge for financial advisers, regulatory experts have claimed. 

In this week's front-page story on Financial Adviser, specialists told how many financial advice businesses still have not gotten to grips with GDPR, specifically getting permissions from clients for data sharing with providers and platforms. 

In other news, an adviser spoke of how his professional indemnity insurance has risen 430 per cent over the past five years, on the basis that he has done a total of just three defined benefit pension transfers.

Also in this week's print edition are in-depth news analyses on estate planning during the Covid-19 lockdown and how advisers are structuring drawdown plans amid the market turmoil.
