Ryan Medlock, senior investment development and technical manager at Royal London comments on the FCA’s Dear CEO letter which covers the relaxation of the 10% drop reporting rule.

“This is a sensible move by the FCA on several levels. In the context of the current market turbulence relaxing this rule should ease one of the many burdens facing advisers right now. It will also be of real benefit to clients who really don’t need to be bombarded with multiple letters to inform them their portfolio has dropped another 10% during these turbulent times.”
