Introduction and overview
Since it first introduced the TCF initiative in 2005, the FSA has been consistent in saying that it expects firms to embed TCF into the core culture of the business. To enable it to assess whether this is happening in practice, the FSA has developed a TCF Culture Framework, which facilitates a review of the main drivers of behaviour within a firm. The Culture Framework is now incorporated into the regular ARROW visits that the FSA carries out. This half-day programme will give participants an appreciation of how the FSA applies the Framework and an opportunity to reflect on the implications for their firms. At the end of the programme the participants will know what embedding TCF really means, how the FSA will assess whether their firms culture implies any risks to TCF and the areas that the firm may need to address.
Aims and objectives
To enable participants to gain an appreciation of the FSA TCF Culture Framework and how it will be applied in practice by FSA supervisors.
To enable participants to form a view on where the greatest risks to TCF might lie within their firm and how they might seek confirmation of their views
Who should attend?
Compliance managers tasked with applying the principles of TCF
Delivery channel managers who are responsible for embedding TCF in their sales process and in the culture of their teams
Anybody who needs to understand the concept of embedding TCF and the use of the FSA TCF Culture Framework will find this course of benefit. This programme is especially useful for senior executives and non-executive directors to enable them to build their awareness.
TCF project managers and project team members, TCF champions, compliance personnel, internal audit staff, are more likely to benefit from one of our longer programmes.
Participants will learn:
what influences behaviour in organisations;
how the FSA will use management information and other available data to carry out an initial analysis of the culture of their firm (from a TCF perspective);
how the FSA will obtain the additional information it needs;
the six behavioural drivers that the FSA assesses and how it match these to their findings and identifies potential risks to TCF.
The workshop consists of a half-day classroom session.
