Complying with the the Client Assets Sourcebook's Client Money Rules and Prudent Segregation Requirements
The Client Assets (CASS) rules continue to provide significant and increasing challenges to firms. One of these challenges is the degree to which compliance with the rules is subject to increasing independent scrutiny, not just by the FCA, but also through the external annual CASS audit requirement. Another challenge is the range of interpretation of the rules themselves.
This full day workshop will focus on the key requirements of the CASS 7 (Client Money) rules and provide guidance on implementing effective and cost efficient compliance approaches. It will also focus on the critical area of client money reconciliations and the widely debated issue of prudent segregation.
