Outer Temple's Andrew Spink KC will be attending the Financial Services Lawyer Association (FSLA) event on Tuesday 20th June 2023.

Andrew Spink KC to lead panel session at ‘The Bank of England’s Approach to Enforcement’ hosted by FSLA

Andrew Spink KC will lead the panel discussion at an event hosted by the Financial Services Lawyer Association (FSLA) on 20th June to discuss The Bank of England’s approach to the changes in their enforcement policies, with keynote speech by Olie Dearie from The Bank of England.

After an introduction by Olie Dearie, Head of the Enforcement and Litigation Division at The Bank of England, there will be a discussion and chance to put questions to Olie and the rest of the panel regarding the proposed changes to the Bank of England’s enforcement policies. The changes – which are subject to consultation – are designed to create a single statement of policy identifying the various enforcement policies and procedures across its remit.

The changes will contain an updated version of the ‘PRA Approach to Enforcement’, as well as signposting the Bank’s other enforcement policies relating to financial market infrastructures, banknotes and in the context of the special resolution regime. The consultation also includes changes which are designed to facilitate earlier cooperation by subjects and faster investigatory outcomes, including via the introduction of an ‘Early Account Scheme’ and a revised approach to calculating the starting point for penalties for firms.

This event is hosted by Financial Services Lawyers Association (FSLA). FSLA provides a forum for the open exchange of views and the dissemination of knowledge and ideas relating to financial services law and regulation. It creates opportunities for financial services lawyers to meet each other at a variety of educational and social events which take place throughout the year. The aim of FSLA is to foster co-operation between the various financial services stakeholders including lawyers and policy experts in industry, academia, regulators and government.

Andrew Spink KC will chair the panel discussion. Also in attendance will be fellow Outer Temple barrister Henry Reid, who is Treasurer and Executive Committee Member of the Financial Services Lawyers Association (FSLA).
