Senior Managers Regime (SMR)
The Financial Conduct Authority’s Senior Managers Regime (SMR) came into force in March 2016 for the banking and insurance sectors and is set to be extended.
This upcoming expansion will impact about 50,000 firms in the financial services sector from 9 December 2019 onwards.
The Senior Managers Regime has come into force due to a perceived lack of ownership and accountability and is creating a system that enables firms and regulators to hold people to account. Senior Managers can be held accountable if they don’t take what the regulator defines as ‘reasonable steps’ to prevent compliance breaches.
A large part of these obligations is that senior managers should establish, maintain and improve appropriate technology and cyber resilience systems and controls – including how to demonstrate accountability and compliance.
Board Directors, GRC professionals, Front Office, Compliance, Risk Management and Operations staff alongside CISO’s, CPO’s and DPO’s need to understand

London has been a critical artery for the flow of money around the world for centuries. The financial services sector accounts for about 12 percent of Britain’s economic output, employs about 1.1 million people and pays more taxes than any other industry.
