Ken Davy: Simplification tops my Christmas list
Dear Santa, I and all my adviser friends are very excited about Christmas this year.
The responses to the FAMR Consultation Paper have to be in by 22 December, which is just in time for you to bring your good cheer to all your helpers beavering away at the FCA, the Treasury and the FSCS.
We know they have had an incredibly busy year, what with all the uncertainty before the General Election, and then the changes as the government turned as blue as a naked gnome in the snow. Nonetheless, it is amazing to think that in 2015, the FCA alone has managed to bring out 42 consultation papers, 28 policy statements, seven discussion papers, seven guidance consultations, six occasional papers, five finalised guidances and four quarterly updates; and not a partridge in a pear tree in sight.
