Regulation Matters Brochure January 2019

3 | Regulation Matters - January 2019

FG18/5: Finalised Guidance on financial crime systems and controls: insider dealing and market manipulation AT A GLANCE On 13th December 2018, the FCA published finalised guidance on financial crime systems and controls: insider dealing and market manipulation (FG18/5). This updates the FCA guidance on financial crime (FC) with an additional chapter on insider dealing and market manipulation (likely to be applicable to MiFID firms only) and a number of minor amendments to other parts of FC to reflect recent regulatory changes and ensure it remains up to date. Among other things: • FC Part 1: A firm’s guide to preventing financial crime, is renamed as the ‘Financial Crime Guide: A firm’s guide to countering financial crime risks’ (FCG). • FC Part 2: Financial crime thematic reviews, is renamed as the ‘Financial Crime Thematic Reviews’ (FCTR). The FCA Handbook website reflects the updated FCG and FCTR. We would particularly recommend firms review their practice about ongoing updates of ‘Know Your Client’ information and how and when they check clients are not sanctioned individuals or are subject to the rules on politically exposed persons.
