When the 2012 SIPP operator thematic report was published, 23 October 2012, we proposed updated guidance which relates to the following FCA Handbook rule(s):
- Conduct of Business sourcebook (COBS) 3.2.3R (2);
- Supervision manual (SUP) chapter 3.10; and
- Client Assets sourcebook (CASS) 6 (where relevant) and CASS 7.
This guidance, which is likely to be of most relevance to SIPP operators but will be of wider interest among firms, trade bodies and consumer representatives, has now been finalised. No substantive changes were made to the guidance following the consultation period.
