    FSA invites comments on the following proposed amendments to the FSA Handbook which relate to the EU Short Selling Regulation that... applies from 1 November 2012: the repeal of the UK’s current short selling regime contained in FINMAR 2; an amendment to DEPP 7 to note that the existing interview policy covers the Regulation; a proposal to apply the existing penalties policy contained in DEPP 6 to the Regulation; an amendment to SUP to provide that a firm must allow access to FSA representatives to its business premises so FSA can fulfil its obligations under the Regulation; an insertion in FINMAR 2 outlining the framework for our use of temporary suspension powers given in the Regulation; an insertion in FINMAR2 specifying the method for converting a euro value into sterling for the purposes of determining one of the categories of shares admitted on UK trading venues to which the temporary suspension powers apply; an insertion in FINMAR 2 outlining the procedure applying to reviews of decisions by FSA to prohibit persons from using the market-maker and authorised primary dealer exemption; consequential amendments to GLOSS, GEN and other parts of the Handbook; FSA notes that it understands that the Government will propose legislation to Parliament before the Regulation comes into effect to amend FSMA and related legislation.

  • FSA: Wealth management

    29/08/2012
    Further to a “Dear CEO” letter on the sector published in June 2011, FSA now notes that it is to interview... key individuals from firms that formed part of its previous work to review the approach firms have taken to remediate problems identified in their client portfolios, and in particular whether they have taken sufficient steps in identifying and dealing with past detriment that consumers may have suffered. Following these interviews FSA will consider whether it needs to take further regulatory action. The new thematic work will include a direct assessment of firms’ systems and controls. FSA states that it will be “acutely interested in whether firms have heeded the warnings and concerns contained within our previous communications”. FSA intends to provide updates on this work in 2013.
