In taking this agenda forward, the FCA has pledged to take steps including:
- hosting a Smarter Consumer Communications event
- considering further guidance on social media and the use of risk warnings
- consulting on changes to disclosure rules and guidance where barriers exist
The round-up also covers the FCA’s approach to prudential regulation and CRD IV, engagement with firms on Gabriel, and details of an upcoming ‘TechSprint’ event later this year that focuses on how RegTech could help streamline regulatory reporting.
