Geography Covered: UK | Duration: 30 minutes


The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has set forth rules to support the objective of securing the appropriate amount of protection for consumers. At the heart of this legislation, known as the dealing and managing rules, is the requirement for firms to act honestly, fairly, and professionally in accordance with the best interests of its clients.

The FCA recognized that not all clients, services, and products are the same, and thus it designed the rules to require firms to take the clients’ level of understanding into consideration. The dealing and managing rules require investment firms to take all sufficient steps to get the best possible result for their clients, taking into account a range of factors, known as the "execution factors." Additionally, the rules provide guidelines on certain practices such as aggregation and allocation, front running, and personal account dealing.

The topics covered in the course include:

  • Background on the FCA’s dealing and managing rules
  • Best execution
  • Order execution
  • Aggregation and allocation
  • Prohibited practices
