IGC Extension of Remit CP19 15

Independent Governance Committees: Extension of Remit. PLSA response to FCA consultation CP19/15

The PLSA has responded to the FCA's consultation on extending the remit of independent governance committees.

The PLSA believes that the FCA’s proposals represent a positive step forward and could result in improved member outcomes. However, we are concerned that the FCA is placing more responsibility on IGCs without equipping them with the necessary powers required to ensure providers take account of their views.
