Are you seeking clarity on the FCA's remedies and how they relate to the concept of 'fair value'? 

We held a webinar on Thursday, 4 March. Kate Collyer, Chief Economist and Interim Director of Competition at the FCA,  joined us to explain all. We explored the points laid out in the General Insurance Pricing Practices Market Study, and discovered what these mean in terms of both expectations, outcomes, next steps and the future of the general insurance industry.

We covered what is meant by fair value, what a firm's role is concerning fairness, and what fair value looks like in a digital age. We also touched on key issues such as product governance and reporting requirements. And much more! It's certainly not one to miss.
