This course focuses on the microprudential regulation and supervision of the UK financial services industry. We examine the two microprudential regulators in terms of who they manage, their statutory objectives and the means by which they meet those objectives.
On completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Recognize why the UK Government established both the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
- Identify the role played by the PRA in the supervision and regulation of deposit-taking institutions in the UK
- Identify the role played by the FCA in the supervision and regulation of those financial institutions not regulated by the PRA and understand its role as a customer champion
