JLT comments on FCA asset management market study

28 June 2017

Commenting on the final findings of the FCA’s asset management market study published today, Mark McNulty, Head of Investment Solutions for JLT Employee Benefits, said: “JLT welcomes much in the FCA’s report. The proposed measures around transparency are particularly pertinent. Bringing investment consultants into its regulatory perimeter will improve competition and value for money for clients. The FCA will likely expect that consultants measure the quality of their advice so that clients can assess their performance relative to the costs they are paying for advice. We call on the FCA to introduce regulation of investment consultants as soon as possible and avoid further delays by referring to the Competition and Markets Authority.”
