Regulators are increasingly emphasising the importance of Conduct and Culture as one of their top priorities. However, whilst many of the largest firms have undertaken wide-ranging projects to address Conduct issues, many small and medium-sized firms have so far done little to identify, and articulate, the Conduct Risks that are of particular relevance for them.

This module explores the concepts of Conduct Risk and Culture, and how they relate to ‘Treating Customers Fairly’ (TCF). It also considers the practical aspects of addressing Conduct Risk, including the role of the Board, as well as the practical steps required to develop and implement a Conduct Risk Programme.

This module is part of our DFSA SEO & Compliance CPD Programme, designed to meet the DFSA's mandatory Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. The DFSA require Senior Executive Officers (SEOs), Compliance Officers and Money Laundering Reporting Officers (MLROs) to complete 15 hours of relevant CPD training every 12 months.

Each of the four modules in our programme consist of a two-hour training course delivered in the DIFC, with one module being delivered every quarter. Upon completing each module, participants will be awarded 2 CPD points. Participants can opt to take one or two modules on a standalone basis or the complete programme and attain eight CPD points.
