Written by those responsible for performing SWAT's DPB and FSA compliance reviews, the manual consists of tried and tested practical procedures that are based on years of experience gained in assisting hundreds of small and medium sized practices with their investment business monitoring visits under the old regime, and extensive discussions with the regulators about the implications of the new system.
The manual will be dispatched at the end of May and gives exceptional value for money at just £99 (£79 to SWAT Full Members).
