Compliance 2019: Adjusting to Change

Each year, Compeer interviews senior compliance executives from across UK Wealth Management and takes their views on the most important regulatory themes of the industry.

During this year’s event, Compeer will present our research examining the impact that new directives, such as GDPR and MiFID II, have had on the industry. What are the common challenges faced by the industry under the new regime? Which approaches to change provided positive outcomes? What were the benefits to the end client? Have there been any unintended consequences of the regulations?

We will also look at how the wealth management sector is preparing for the implementation of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR), and whether the lessons of recent regulatory change have been learnt.


There is no charge for this seminar for representatives of wealth management firms and private banks. A charge of £250 + VAT per ticket applies for service providers.

CPD certificates will be issued shortly after the seminar
