Advice Matters  – Edition 3 – 2021

Welcome to the third edition of Advice Matters for 2021. Click the image below to access a full hour of structured CPD from FSTP, produced in conjunction with Access group and UK Finance.

Advice Matters is an accredited bi-monthly e-journal. Each edition contains a number of articles written by industry experts, that combine knowledge and skills related topics, with technical and regulatory updates.

Every edition is aligned to the ApEx standards, with a review at the end of each journal to show the learning outcomes and standards covered.

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.

In this edition we consider the deep impression Covid-19 has left on Business Interruption Insurance and the fallout from the Financial Markets Test Case Scheme. In our second article we take a high-level look at the FCA’s publication, ‘FG21/3: Advising on pension transfers guidance’. Given the fact that it’s a 90-pager, we’re only really able to give you a precis of its key elements. Finally, we turn our attention to Whistleblowing. Something of an old regulatory chestnut, maybe, but one that is a permanent fixture on both the FCA’s and PRA’s ‘watch list’.
