Introduction to SMCR Training Course

The UK's financial services sector has been rocked over the past decade by scandals ranging from misselling to market manipulation.

Public outrage forced the UK Government to give new powers to the financial regulators (the PRA and FCA)  to improve the UK financial sector's professional standards.

This led to the launch of the Senior Managers and Certified Persons Regime (SMCR).

Our Introduction to SMCR Training Course will help your employees gain a basic understanding of how this regime affects them and your company.
