Essential Guide To Writing A Business Plan

We need to better understand the emerging risks and opportunities so that the huge benefits to consumers are captured and the important harms mitigated. Firms need to do more to make financial services work well for consumers. Our aim is to set clearer and higher expectations for the standard of care and customer service firms give consumers. We will also work with the Government and wider partners to support financial inclusion within financial services. We have included an outcome and metrics which reflect our current focus on access to cash. We also made some modifications to our existing Executive Procedures framework.

Potential fragmentation of the value chain, due to more outsourcing of processes to InsurTechs, could lead to reduced access and oversight to these functions for both insurers and regulators. So far, losses incurred have been small in proportion to balance sheets, but in the coming year there will be more focus on the potential risks from large tech companies entering and disrupting financial markets, or generating unacceptable levels of concentration. The PRA works closely with the Bank and the FCA to take a pro-active approach to digitalisation. From a supervisory perspective, diversity and inclusion is an important mitigant to group think, as it helps bring different perspectives, experiences, and concerns to the table, fostering constructive challenge and debate.

Most savvy investors will focus on people as they believe that execution skills are what matters most. You need to prove you have the skills, experience and network necessary for success. The assessment will also help you in discussions with banks, investors and even potential buyers of your business. Regular review is also a good vehicle for showing direction and commitment to employees, customers and suppliers. As you regularly review your business’ performance against that plan, you’ll also gain insight into the most likely strategies for future growth. You can consider your business plan as a dynamic template intended to help your business thrive.

Our actions will encompass our roles both as the supervisor of regulated firms and markets and our role in the capital markets as the securities and listings regulator. We will take action to deliver a clear, well-understood proportionate regime which upholds high standards and supports innovation. Where we are gatekeepers for users to access markets, we will improve processes to make them as efficient and robust as possible.

There are wide-ranging drivers of the different types of fraud and an array of parties who can affect its prevalence and impact on victims. The effect on outcomes depends on those partners working together and taking actions, as well as us. The incidence of fraud is also affected by levels of consumer awareness and consumer behaviour. So it is challenging to isolate and measure the impact of our interventions on fraud. Our investment in technology will continue, including developing a Digital Unified Intelligence Environment to connect the vast array of data and intelligence we hold across our systems. This will deliver key actionable insights to our teams to decisively spot and stop harm, delivering the right data, at the right place, at the right time.
