Session 14: Financial Professionals – Appointed Representatives Workshop

28 February 2024

Speakers: Shail Patel and Will Cook

Appointed representatives (“ARs”) are high on the agenda for financial regulatory reform. The FCA says they cause widespread customer harm. This workshop covers what ARs are, their legislative framework, and key issues arising in claims against ARs and their principals. It also discusses the findings of the FCA’s consultations in the area, and recent reforms to the rules, leading to the question – will these changes increase or decrease the scope for claims ?
