Section 166/Skilled Person Review

We develop effective remediation action plan

Under the Financial Services and Markets Act, as amended by the 2012 Act, the regulator has the power to require a firm to appoint a Skilled Person to produce a report on specified matters or to appoint a skilled person directly. Receiving a regulatory requirement notice, is a daunting experience for any firm, especially who are unfamiliar with the process. At Kharis & Knoble, our experts can provide support and help you navigate the stormy waters.
