U.K. report on asset managers finds deficiencies

first_img Share this article and your comments with peers on social media James Langton Facebook LinkedIn Twitter The U.K.’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) published a new report today, examining asset managers. The report found firms that are using insufficient product descriptions, as well as funds with inadequate governance and oversight. The FCA review looked at whether funds operated in line with investors’ expectations, as described in the funds’ marketing material and disclosure. It also looked at how firms monitored the distribution of their funds. Among other issues, the review found that some firms do not monitor fund distribution adequately. For example, it found some funds available on execution-only platforms that were intended to be sold only with advice. It also found that some funds were not clear enough about how they were managed. For example, some funds failed to disclose an investment strategy, and one included jargon that, the FCA says, ordinary investors would be unlikely to understand. The regulator called on asset managers to ensure that their funds’ descriptions are clear and correct, because investors and financial advisors rely on this information when making investment decisions. The FCA also stressed that firms must provide effective governance and oversight throughout the life of a fund, including funds that are no longer actively marketed. The FCA also says that firms must monitor their funds’ distribution channels to watch for inappropriate sales. “All fund management firms should consider the findings in this paper and review their arrangements accordingly. Distributors should consider their responsibilities in light of our findings,” the FCA report says.

Cable TV operators claim ‘must carry’ rule goes too far

first_imgThe warning on the requirement known as ‘must carry’ comes as MEPs prepare to vote on a draft directive covering the struggling sector at the start of their autumn session. ‘Must carry’ is seen as a way to guarantee that some public service broadcasts are offered to cable customers and to ensure they are not squeezed-out in a commercial frenzy.But Hendrik Abma, spokesman for the European Cable Communications Association, said the obligations sap cable networks of vital bandwidth – denying them potential revenue from fast Internet services. At the same time, operators seldom get a fair reward for actually carrying the services, he claimed. “Most European cable networks are in great need of investment to upgrade the networks to the required standard and in new interactive services. We can agree that some ‘must carry’ [channels] can be acceptable but some times it goes too far – for example we don’t want any commercial channels without a public remit getting ‘must carry’ status.”German cable operators are the most weighed down – more than 30 channels have ‘must carry’ status. In parts of Belgium, pay-TV Canal Plus services must also be offered. Abma said a recent common position reached by telecom ministers was too tough and urged MEPs to follow a more sympathetic report by UK Conservative Malcolm Harbour when they vote in September.Industry warns cable networks could be the forgotten victims of the struggling telecoms sector. While telecom firms have been able to secure funds to see them out of their current third-generation-mobile-induced cash crisis, cable companies are finding it harder going.last_img read more
