A new approach to publicity over FCA investigations

To The Point

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is proposing to make significant changes to its Enforcement Guide (EG).  It has published Consultation Paper (CP) 24/2 entitled 'Our Enforcement Guide and publicising enforcement investigations – a new approach'. The most impactful reforms in the CP relate to the way that the FCA approaches publicity over its investigations. In this article, we explain the FCA's key proposals which will, if adopted, see a major change in its approach.  Interested parties have until 16 April 2024 to provide their feedback.
