Time: 1.30pm to 4.30pm   

Cost: £399 + VAT

Location: ACA UK offices, 130 Jermyn Street, London, SW1Y 4UR

Course Overview:

A robust and well-defined governance structure underpins all effective governance frameworks and is key to compliance with the FCA’s requirements in its Systems and Controls handbook (SYSC).  An informal structure with limited documentation or poorly defined processes cannot support management in the oversight of its business and can lead to a lack of transparency regarding which body or individual is accountable for activities and a reliance on informal reporting mechanisms.

This course will assist delegates in understanding those elements that go to make corporate governance an effective tool within your organisation.
