IFPR is Just 100 Days Away: Are You Ready?
Today marks 100 days until the UK's Investment Firm Prudential Regime (IFPR) comes into force – setting in stone a new regime that significantly impacts investment managers, advisors and brokers who provide MiFID services.
The challenge of understanding and implementing the new requirements in such a short amount of time should not be underestimated.
Despite the onus placed on preparing for its implementation, recent polls taken at ACA’s Fall Conference, held on 21 September 2021, show that only 10% of firms feel they are ready and capitalised for the new regime, with 45% seeing compliance systems and resources as their top priority.
With the publication of the FCA’s second Policy Statement, there is no longer a valid excuse to delay implementation. We recommend that you address how this new prudential framework will impact you and plan now for capital and other prudential resource needs.
100 days is just enough time to tackle the new requirements. By acting now, you can comply with the changes whilst causing minimal disruption to your business.
Download our checklist that captures 13 key considerations for firms implementing the required changes ahead of the 1 January 2022 deadline.
