What the FCA's latest market review means for advisers

The Financial Conduct Authority hit the headlines last week when it published its latest Call for Input, asking the advice industry to respond to a range of issues affecting the sector.

From the funding structure of the FSCS to whether direct to consumer platforms should take more responsibility for the products their clients end up with, the FCA made it clear it thought the investment market was not working as well as it should for end consumers.

So what does this mean for advisers, and what could be the end result of the regulator’s investments probe?

In this episode, reporter Imogen Tew is joined by Mike Barrett, consultant at the Lang Cat, and Alistair Fullerton, director at Lathe and Co, to discuss the possibilities.

After the break, Imogen is joined by Financial Adviser editor Simoney Kyriakou and fellow reporter Rachel Mortimer to discuss the biggest news stories of the week.
