This training course offers a comprehensive introduction to the responsibilities of senior managers in a convenient ‘on-demand’ format.

It is specifically designed for holders of Senior Management Functions (SMFs) within FCA-authorised firms, who have specific responsibilities under the Senior Managers & Certification Regime (SM&CR). The course considers the impact of the SM&CR, including the Conduct Rules, as well as other regulatory obligations that apply to regulated firms and to senior managers personally. It explores the personal liability associated with being a senior manager as well as the important concept of ‘reasonable steps’.

The course also outlines the obligations set out in the 'Senior Management Arrangements, Systems & Controls' (SYSC) sourcebook of the FCA Handbook. It explains the principal obligations under SYSC and explores how individual senior managers can gain confidence that their firms are meeting the regulatory requirements.
