On 22 September 2021, the FCA published a speech by its CEO, Nikhil Rathi, entitled Seizing opportunity – challenges and priorities for the FCA.

Key points in the speech include:

  • The FCA will be publishing its third annual perimeter report next month, sharing its views on how the regulatory framework might evolve.
  • The FCA will be publishing before the end of the year its feedback to the responses to its Call for Input on wholesale data.
  • The FCA is investing to become as much a data regulator as a financial one, working with partners to realise a future where compliance checks can be completed in near real time.
