Advice Matters will allow professionals to access 6 hours of structured CPD throughout the year from the comfort of their desk, or on the go using a mobile device. Each edition is also accompanied by associated questions to help test and verify your knowledge.

This latest edition revisits the issue of vulnerable customers – a subject that, quite rightly, is firmly nailed on to the FCA’s agenda and one that’s been thrown into much sharper focus by Covid-19. We also consider the thorny issue of market abuse; what it is and how the FCA goes about monitoring and regulating against it. The UK’s departure from the EU will have a bearing on the framework of rules and regulation around market abuse and we give thought to what this means in practice. Last, but not least, we take a high level look at hedge funds, a topic that came to prominence recently as a result of the GameStop ‘fiasco’ and the increasing influence of amateur ‘day traders’
