Enforcement highlights include further criticism levied by the Upper Tribunal on the FCA, which will impact how they run proceedings in future. We have also seen the conclusion of the non-financial misconduct matter, Frensham, with the SMCR implications that will have.

Whilst the FCA's consultation on "streamlining" decision making gives rise to some real concerns.

As ever, with thanks to the Enforcement Watch team.
