Changes to PII Coming Into Force at Your Next Renewal

Changes in relation to the PII requirements have been made to the Fiduciary Rules, the Capital Adequacy Rules, the Insurance Managers Rules and the Insurance Intermediaries Rules following feedback from recent consultation papers.

Overview

Licensees in the Investment, Fiduciary and Insurance sectors should be aware that the GFSC has updated the following rules.

What is the purpose of the revisions?

The revisions have taken place in response to firms being offered the chance to comment on fatal flaws within two recent consultation papers.

The recent changes to the final rules provide consistency of drafting, however no changes to the substance of the requirements have been made.

The Licensees (Capital Adequacy) Rules and Guidance – Section 6.1
