Financial services risk and regulation unravelled

Gavin Stewart Gavin Stewart

In our Risk and Regulation Unravelled podcast, we discuss the latest developments in financial services with industry experts. Gavin Stewart and Irina Velkova lead the conversation.

It's been a turbulent time for the financial services industry. Along with everything that's happened to us all this year, Brexit has left the industry on uncertain footing. 

To help you keep to your course through uncertainty, we met with a series of sector specialists to get their thoughts on the risks facing the industry and what's happening with regulation.

This podcast was recorded before the PRA’s policy statement on operational resilience published 29th March 2021.

We've recorded our conversations as a podcast series that you can listen to below:

In the first episode of our podcast, we're joined by our guests to discuss the upcoming Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) statement on operational resilience:
