Annual Public Meeting 2019
At the annual public meeting 2019, we discussed our 2018/19 Annual Report and Accounts.
There was an opportunity for questions to the Chair, Chief Executive and directors of the FCA.
We looked at how we have delivered against our strategic objective to make markets work well, and our three operational objectives of securing an appropriate degree of protection for consumers, protecting and enhancing the integrity of the UK financial system, and promoting effective competition in the interests of consumers.

Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR): solo-regulated firms
From 9 December 2019, we are extending the SM&CR to solo-regulated firms. This extension affects almost every solo-regulated firm, from very small firms (including sole traders and limited permission consumer credit firms) to some of the largest global firms.
The SM&CR will apply to all FSMA authorised firms. It also applies to branches of non-UK firms with permission to carry out regulated activities in the UK.
