#MeToo in Asset Management

The FCA has taken a significant interest in how #MeToo allegations and investigations are being managed in the asset management industry and we have been advising a number of clients in relation to handling and investigating allegations made by or about their employees.

 

By their nature, these allegations are complex and sensitive to deal with and require a nuanced approach not least due to the potential impact they may have on individuals’ compliance with the Code of Conduct and their fitness and propriety – issues which will be front and centre of firms’ minds once they are subject to the Senior Managers and Certification Regime from 9 December 2019.  In this briefing, Sarah, Robbie and Sarah will be speaking about their experience advising clients in relation to this topic and discussing the challenges and sensitivities of investigating these matters from both a regulatory and employment perspective.

 

Speakers

  • Sarah Henchoz, Partner, Allen & Overy
  • Robbie Sinclair, Senior Associate, Allen & Overy
  • Sarah Hitchins, Senior Associate, Allen & Overy
