Within this section of the Industry Events Online website you will find relevant events and training courses that have specific interest to regulated mortgage and home finance firms and professionals as well as interested parties. All results are fully searchable allowing visitors to search and sort content by: theme; date; location; budget; and even Continual Professional Development (CPD) hours and credits.
The need for effective and relevant finance and financial services events and training courses has never been greater than it is today with regulated firms and authorised individuals alike increasingly under pressure to maintain their professional standards to prove that they meet their regulatory obligations. Failure to meet the standards and requirements set by regulators across the globe could result in enforcement action taking the form of financial penalty, customer redress and permission to transact business refusal or withdrawal, all resulting in reputational damage which ultimately could result in the business failing.
It is, therefore, vital that firms ensure that those working for them maintain the standards expected and set by global regulators. To do this individuals in Significant Influence Functions and those carrying on Controlled Functions are required to continually update their knowledge and experience by completing Continual Professional Development (CPD) throughout a given year as well as ongoing. CPD credit requirements are set by the relevant and approved institutions to the individual's profession. Failure to maintain the set number of credits per year could result in membership of that institution being revoked. Regulators take this in to consideration when assessing if someone is "fit and proper" as well as "competent" to carry on a role.
The above clearly shows how important it is for individuals to find relevant finance and financial services events. This is no easy task as there are numerous organisations, training companies, individuals and associations out there all offering finance and financial services events and training. Industry Events Online realised the need for a dedicated search website that was supported by a panel of existing practitioners. The content we therefore list is only relevant to the financial services and closely related industries making it the first place to visit for many delegates and interested parties.
