Live & Local

Following the success of our first Live & Local regional programme in 2016/17 we are now launching our 2017/18 programme. From July 2017, we are travelling across the UK with a series of events for regulated firms.

Having listened to delegate feedback we are changing the structure of this year’s programme. We will visit each region more than once during the programme to give firms more opportunity to attend a variety of events.

While a regular schedule of events are aimed at retail investment and general insurance firms, we will also hold ad-hoc events for various sectors featuring our Chairman and Executive Committee, as well as additional events focusing on priorities set out in our business plan.

Retail investment

General insurance

From July 2017, we are offering the below events for retail investment firms across the UK:

Events for general insurance firms across the UK will start in Autumn 2017 and will include:

  • Interactive workshops
  • Q&A roundtable with a panel of FCA and industry representatives

In addition, we are planning half-day presentations in London tailored for wholesale insurance and retail insurance firms, focusing on key issues specific to each type of firm.

Details of upcoming retail investment events

Details for general insurance events will be available shortly.
