The FSA is looking to add three more qualifications to its training and competence (TC) sourcebook.
In a consultation paper (CP12/8), the regulator has proposed adding the following qualifications to its qualifications table in the TC sourcebook: The Association of Certified International Investment Analysts (ACCIA)'s CIIA, the Pensions Management Institute's diploma in regulated retirement advice and the Faculty or Institute of Actuaries fellow or associate.
The watchdog has also proposed amending the details for three qualifications on its appropriate qualification list in the TC sourcebook.
These include changing the code for the ACI Diploma to include modules covering regulation and ethics, investment principles and risk and personal taxation when advising on certain securities and derivatives.
It has also proposed expanding the London Stock Exchange exams to include other regional stock exchanges when merged with the London Stock Exchange.
Feedback should reach the regulator by 31 May.
