Tracker

A single reference point for all you need to know in regulation and legislation.

Tracker is a single point of reference for all the consultations, discussion papers and ongoing policy work across the regulatory and legislative landscape.

It is designed for regulated financial firms of all shapes and sizes to help them stay on top of policy developments that will likely impact them and their customers in some way.

Monitoring and regular updating will be conducted by our regulatory and public affairs team, who will collate what finance professionals need to know. We will also provide analysis of what any proposed changes might entail and help you join the dots between the different initiatives. 

As well as covering the relevant regulators, such as the FCA and PRA, Pensions Regulator, the relevant government departments, the FOS and the FSCS, we add in anything else which we think might be interesting, such as the work of parliamentary committees, political party policy documents, or important speeches.

There are always links to the source document and a summary of what it’s about, and we’ll also add our own commentary to key documents.

So if you suddenly need to write a report about what’s happening in regulation right now, or you need a quick summary and a link to dive deeper into a particular document, the Tracker is here for you. It’s like having the Regulatory and Public Affairs team in your pocket.

Subscribers also receive a regular update email to make sure you haven’t missed anything that has been recently added to Tracker. The email also gives you a heads up on papers, policies and announcements that may be coming over the months ahead.

You can access examples of our Tracker update emails below:

Why should I use Tracker?

  • It’s Monday morning and I’ve just been asked when the closing date is for a consultation I’ve never heard of.
  • I’m working on a new product proposal and I know there was a consultation on new rules that might be relevant, but I can’t remember if it came from the DWP, the Treasury, or the Pensions Regulator
  • I’m making a presentation today and someone’s told me the FCA has issued a policy statement that I need to know about. I don’t have time to read it in detail, I just need to know the ‘so what?’
  • I’m planning my team’s workload and I need to know all the DWP consultations that close before the end of the month
  • I’ve forgotten the date of my partner’s birthday and I feel I may be in big trouble when I get home*

The Impact of Poor Service

We provided the research for a report, in conjunction with Parmenion, which reveals how far short of expectations many adviser platforms are falling. The research found that over the last 12 months, 88% of advisers needed to apologise to at least one of their clients on behalf of a platform, and that poor service delivery from platforms impacts 91% of advisers every day.

Answering the Call

Service means a lot of things to a lot of different people. It’s so subjective it can be hard to put your finger on. This paper aims to challenge the status quo and inertia that’s built up in the sector for many years.
