Since 2014, when the Financial Conduct Authority took over regulation of the credit arena, they have been moving towards full delivery of their business plan. The mission to ensure fair treatment of consumers from an industry offering responsible credit, is well under way.
One big question hangs over the work. Has overly enthusiastic regulation limited available credit options, and effectively reduced consumer freedom of choice to an untenably narrow and unfairly balanced field? Throughout the year, the CCTA ‘Protect Access to Responsible Credit’ (PARC) campaign will be at the forefront of our lobbying activity.
The conference will provide a full progress update, and review; where we were, were we are now, and what’s new on the horizon.
Moving into 2020, the immediate focus will be on leadership, tone and culture, with the implementation of SM&CR regimes. When the last stages of the FCA mandate are complete, will the dust finally settle for the industry, or will an ever-changing horizon create continuing challenge for this beleaguered corner of the UK economy?
Join us in unlocking the answers, and focusing on the line of the horizon.
