Hosted by Rodrigo De Noronha Head of HR Operations at Morgan Stanley.

Over the last couple of years we’ve seen the FCA and PCBS start developing new Senior Manager and Certification Regimes to help embed personal accountability into the Financial Services (FS) sector and improve industry standards. As of March this year a new Senior Manager Certification Regime (SMCR) was introduced to focus on relevant individuals who hold key responsibilities in FS organisations. 

Going forward firms will be legally required to ensure that they have the tools and procedures in place to assess Senior Managers’ propriety before applying for regulatory approval and on an on-going annual basis.

For FS organisations this presents a number of pressing HR and compliance challenges which this HR Leadership Think Tank will attempt to address, for example:

  • How can companies structure themselves to provide annual and ad-hoc certification processes and regulated references?
  • Operationally what impact will the SMCR have on businesses?
  • How will cross-border identification work and how will SMCR affect employees of other jurisdictions?

These Think Tanks are invitation only and held exclusively for senior HR and Resourcing professionals. For more information on the Think Tanks or to be considered for membership please telephone 0207 11 88 444 or apply for membership below
