Abstract

There are less than 14 months to go until the UK Retail Distribution Review (RDR) takes effect, and many life and pension companies are in the middle of planning their implementations. New standards of professionalism and transparency are driving major change across the life, pensions, and retail investment industries. Celent senior analyst Jamie Macgregor examines the opportunities and challenges that this regulation presents and considers the potential implications for technology. This webinar reviews how RDR regulation will impact the industry, exploring some of the key operational and technological challenges for distribution and product providers, and examining the implications for the role of the change and IT directors.

This presentation draws on findings from the Celent report UK Retail Distribution Review: Key Challenges and Implications for Change and IT.
