About Transitional Licensing

 

In the new regime, the new legislation means you have eight new duties under the law, nine new standards regarding the Code of Professional Conduct and regulations such as the new Disclosure Regulations. You have to abide by the new duties, standards and regulations to provide regulated financial advice to retail clients.

These are different to the old requirements and your advice business and processes will have to be reviewed and adapted to ensure you are compliant. In addition to this you also have new disclosure requirements which will have to be updated from the 15 March 2021.
