Course Outline & Objectives 

FCA regulation brings many challenges to consumer credit firms, not least with regard to financial promotions. The CONC Sourcebook introduces a whole new set of rules, guidance and ‘standards’ for Marketing and Compliance teams, along with a higher level of scrutiny and more severe consequences for failings. This practical workshop is designed to help firms ensure and demonstrate compliance in this area of high regulatory and reputational risk. 

Attending will help you: 

  • Keep up to date with the impact of regulatory developments on financial promotions
  • Update and refresh your knowledge of the relevant CONC requirements
  • Review the application of the rules in challenging or high risk areas
  • Recognise the differences between promotions and other communications
  • Check the effectiveness of your approvals process and compliance controls
  • Understand how the rules impact digital media
  • Consider how you can evidence your promotions present the offer fairly 

Who will benefit 

If you have responsibility for creating or approving advertisements and other communications for consumer credit products, this workshop will help you understand and comply with regulatory expectations. Firms gain real business benefits from sending people from their Compliance and Marketing areas. 

Training Approach 

This course will use a combination of tutor input, discussion, examples and case studies to identify and address the practical digital media issues facing financial institutions. Class size will be limited to 16 to ensure a high-quality learning environment.
