FCA Seeks Input on Updating Asset Management Regulation

When the U.K. left the European Union (E.U.), it temporarily transferred E.U. financial services legislation into U.K. law, leaving for future consideration which E.U. laws to adopt permanently. In December 2022, His Majesty’s Treasury concluded its Future Regulatory Framework review, which sought to ensure the country’s “regulatory framework for financial services continues to be coherent, agile and internationally respected,” according to the recent discussion paper (Discussion Paper) issued by the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
