In January 2022, Sionic undertook a survey in relation to the FCA and PRA’s Operational Resilience regulation, which is due to come into force in March 2022. The survey was issued to a cross-section of participants in the wealth management and private banking sector. The purpose of the survey was to gain an insight into where firms are in their Operational Resilience programmes, as well as to gain insight into the challenges firms face. The results of the survey have been anonymised.

Key insights:

  • The majority of participating organisations have appointed an Operational Resilience accountable individual.
  • Accountability is a core theme throughout the Policy Statement and ensuring roles and responsibilities are clear and well-understood are imperative to a successful programme.
  • Of the participating organisations, the majority of Operational Resilience accountable individuals are either the SMF24 accountable person or equivalent.
  • While this reflects the regulatory expectation, the Risk team will play a critical oversight role, providing check and challenge across the application of the regulation.
  • It is also imperative to have a business leader to drive engagement across the organisation and operate as the connection between the Board’s obligations and the role of the wider business
