Financial Services Authority Offers Roadshows to Small Firms

The UK's financial services regulator has 'roadshows' to help small firms understand common areas which are currently topical in their industry sector. Look to the FSA for helpful roadshows discussing regulatory areas and small firm concerns:
These are delivered by FSA staff who supervise small firms. They provide an overview of topical issues and findings from our recent research. Roadshows are free and give you the opportunity to hear first hand from us about the issues affecting your firm.

Who should attend? All small firms within the relevant sectors.
