UKFS - Conflicts of Interest Training PDF - A Practical Guide For UK Financial Services Companies

A Practical Training Guide For UK Financial Services Companies

The potential for Conflicts of Interest (CofI) will always be present in your work, so it's important you know how to deal with them. 


This course will provide you with an understanding of your role in managing potential conflicts of interest.


A conflict of interest is not, in itself, evidence of wrongdoing. However, a conflict can become a legal, regulatory or reputational problem if it is not managed effectively.


If you are a UK incorporated company, the 2006 Companies Act Sections 175 to 177 states CofI, Gifts and Personal Interests as Directors Responsibility.
