Spicing up your life: LexisNexis’ Financial Services blog starts. Oh yes, and the PRA and FCA get going.

In a reverse position of the Spice Girls’ track, 1 has become 2, at least in terms of financial regulation in the UK, with the FSA having been replaced on 1st April by the PRA (Prudential Regulation Authority) and the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority).

The team of Lexis lawyers always wannabe as helpful as possible and so, along with some leading specialists in the FS field, put together a handy reference document on the regulator changes. Pink-cheeked with the success of that publication, they decided to create this site as a place to host further free material for those who want to join the party. Say you’ll be there.

For those who haven’t yet seen the Financial Services Act guide, you can access it here. It includes helpful insights from Judith Seddon of Clifford Chance, Sarah Clarke of Serjeants’ Inn Chambers, Caroline Wayman of the Financial Services Ombudsman, and Emma Radmore of SNR Denton UK; as well as items on how the changes affect Competition, Pensions and Commercial advisors in addition to FS specialists.

No doubt it’s a topic we’ll come back to. (Would be interested to know your take on how things are going with the new regulators now we’re a couple of months in…)

But FS being FS, it’s unlikely there’ll be a shortage of topics to discuss. Next up, AIFMD.

Time for me to stop right now. Thank you very much.
