On January 4, the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) published its 15th quarterly consultation (CP 08/1) setting out various proposed changes to its handbook. The proposals include miscellaneous changes to the General Prudential sourcebook in respect of the calculation of solo capital resources for entities at the head of financial conglomerates, amending the Supervision manual to reflect changes to the FSA’s approved persons regime and its integrated regulatory reporting requirements, as well as amendments to the UK Listing Rules for investment entities listing depositary receipts. The consultation also includes miscellaneous changes proposed to the FSA’s Market Conduct and Collective Investment Schemes sourcebooks.
The deadline for comments is March 4. Comments related to proposed amendments to the FSA’s Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook are requested by February 4.
