In the past week:
- Lynda Blackwell spoke on how the Mortgage Market Review will create a sustainable market for lenders, brokers and borrowers; and
- Peter Smith spoke on the transition of the retail investment market to the Retail Distribution Review world and beyond. He emphasised the goals of the RDR and the 2012 deadlines it set. He also discussed recent consultations and initiatives, specifically on platforms, product risks (particularly on unregulated collective investment schemes and structured products) and forthcoming changes to the regulatory structure.
