The five biggest issues we are helping DFMs with today.

As the leading provider of regulatory support to DFMs, we have complied a list of the top five issues we are supporting firms with today:

  1. Confidence with Consumer Duty readiness
  2. Having sufficient record keeping around investment decisions, especially since MiFID II made it mandatory to record the investment rationale for "hold" decisions, not just buys and sells.
  3. Identifying and supporting vulnerable clients
  4. Ensuring remuneration policies are up to date as per IFPR
  5. Creating a robust and repeatable process for initial planning and ongoing advice
