FCA responds to PM’s lockdown-easing broadcast

The Financial Conduct Authority has called on the financial services sector not to make any changes in the wake of the Prime Minister’s statement broadcast on Sunday over the easing of the UK lockdown.

In a statement the FCA said: “The financial services industry has continued to operate during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis with homeworking and some workers operating in locations such as branches and call centres.

“We have previously published advice on the steps financial services firms should take, for example identifying key workers and the responsibilities of senior managers, and there is no change to those statements at this stage.

“Firms should continue to follow government advice until notified otherwise.”
