Subscribe to our newsletter

The incoming Head of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), reiterated the significance of The Senior Management Regime (SMR), which became law on 7th March. This gives executive management legal responsibility for their decisions.

BCBS 239 regulates assembly of data used for these decisions. Individual managers are accountable for decisions they take and for ensuring data is fit for purpose. The FCA state: “Managers cannot delegate responsibility”.

  • Personal fines, disbarring from the industry and criminal sanctions
