In May we ran a webinar with Gerard Hurley (Chief Compliance Officer at Chip) where he analysed the FCA's COVID-19 response and how their 2020 priorities apply to FinTech Firms. He also spent time covering the FCA's new plan on data protection.
With the recent news that criminal gangs are stealing people's personal information to falsely apply for Government COVID business bailout loans, this webinar is now more relevant than ever. You can view a recording of this webinar by scrolling down.
The FCA has set out their 2020/2021 business plan, with a focus on progress without undermining the coronavirus response. As well as ensuring that the regulatory burden on firms remains proportionate, under the current circumstances.
COVID-19 has had a profound effect on consumers and markets. Businesses are facing unprecedented challenges as they try to balance business continuity and the safety of their employees, along with the interests of customers.
Gerard is currently the Chief Compliance Officer at Chip, where he has successfully secured FCA authorisation. He also spent four years at Funding Circle, as the Head of Compliance for the UK as well as an MLRO role. Previously, he spent three years at the FCA in Associate Supervisory positions and before that, he spent three years at KPMG in Investment Banking Practice.
