Clive Adamson, director of supervision at the Conduct Business Unit of the FSA, spoke on UK regulatory changes and the RDR in his speech "Regulating in a new era of professionalism". He explained the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will look and feel different from the FSA in that it will be more forward-looking, will intervene earlier, will be quick to address underlying causes of problems and will work to secure redress for consumers and take meaningful action against firms that fail to meet its standards. He then spoke on how professionalism must be at the core of advice for long-term savings and asked firms to be sure they were ready for RDR implementation.
