“It is expected that guidance will be released in the weeks to come and will be an important opportunity for financial advisers to share their views and take action,” said Paul O’Connell, FCA’s Director of Financial Advice.
Last week, Fca announced its annual report for the third year in a row, showing it has managed to stay ahead of the market.
