henry stewart hosts one-day events on role of compliance officers
Henry Stewart is to hold a one-day conference on the role of the compliance officer.
The conference, to be held at Jurys Hotel in London on 17 July, will be chaired by the FSA's industry training development manager, Sheena Gray.
The topics covered in the conference include the role of compliance personnel, the compliance officer as training officer, advising the board on individual accountability issues, the law and what constitutes best practice.
The conference is designed to explain the changes to the role of the compliance officer, a role which has been expanded by the build up in legislation effecting intermediaries and financial services companies.
The conference costs £395 plus VAT, however discounts are available for group bookings.

Meanwhile, Scottish Provident is sponsoring a nationwide series of one-day interactive Training & Competency (T&C) workshops run by Phil Billingham Associates which began in May and run through to November at venues across the UK.
The workshops are designed to help advisers meet the N2 requirements of having a T&C regime in place. It focuses on the key areas involved in running an effective T&C regime, including recruitment, running a risk-based scheme, training as well as review and assessment.
This year's series will include three levels of supervisor workshops: a four part series of refresher seminars, supervisor or advanced workshops which will explain how to manage paraplanners and specialists through interactive and case study-based training. Alan Cole, training manager, Scottish Provident said: 'In the new N2 environment, it is becoming increasingly important for IFAs to keep abreast of and successfully meet regulatory changes. The training and competency courses we are sponsoring aim to help IFAs meet these demands and keep them up to date with the key issues involved in running an effective T&C regime.'
Phil Billingham, of Phil Billingham Associates, is vice chairman of SOFA, fellow of the LIA, and is the chairman and founder of the IFA Training & competency officers forum.
