This programme outlines the CBI's supervisory priorities for 2015. Some of the themed inspections are:
- Integrity of regulatory returns – review of firms' regulatory reporting;
- Conduct of business - review of selected MiFID conduct of business requirements; and
- Person discharging managerial responsibilities - review of policies and practices in relation to notification of relevant trading activity by persons discharging managerial responsibility in listed firms.
Director of Markets Supervision, Gareth Murphy said: "Investor protection, market integrity and financial stability are at the core of the Central Bank's mandate. By announcing these themed-inspections, we are highlighting areas where investment firms, funds and market participants may need to raise standards."
