City & Financial’s Summit is unique in that it focusses exclusively on regulated firms and the particular challenges facing them in terms of balancing fixed and discretionary remuneration to reflect their culture and risk appetite. It will also, however, look at wider ESG factors including gender and ethnic pay gap issues and reporting affecting all organisations.

We are particularly delighted to welcome David Blunt, Head of Conduct Specialists, Financial Conduct Authority as our keynote speaker who will discuss the regulator’s expectations of firms when setting their reward and remuneration strategy.

Issues to be covered include:

• The UK’s post-Brexit approach to remuneration strategy and the prudential regulation of investment firms
• How will EU developments impact investment firms and to what extent is the UK regime likely to diverge?
• The practical impact of upcoming CRDV developments on remuneration in banks
• How the wider executive pay debate for UK listed companies may impact financial services pay
• Best practice in resolving gender and ethnic pay gap issues

Who should attend?

This event should be attended by senior management of all financial institutions, including: heads of compensation, benefits and rewards; heads of human resources; heads of regulatory HR; chief operating officers, heads of internal audit; heads of compliance; heads of legal and heads of tax, as well as by their legal and financial advisers.
