Last month we made available for all to see the results of an FOI request to the FCA relating to consultations. Our worst fears were realised when we eventually got a reply. 

It confirmed what it would seem many held as a shared view.

If some 93,000 regulated firms can manage to muster an average, based on my FOI reply, of some 45.6 respondents per consultation, what hope is there for firms to engage with any FCA consultation if those responding feel there is not some very real input to shape positive outcomes that is listened to.

Many will know Graeme Abell, Director of Nationals & Networks for M&G UK Retail. He had worked for M&G for some 19 years and retired in December. It was therefore with considerable sorrow that we learned of his untimely death just before Christmas. He was a great friend and supporter of Panacea and we are sure he will be sorely missed by very many of our IFA community in addition to his family.
