Actuarial post: Even Robots must be regulated This article was originally commissioned for Inner Workings, a monthly column written by Tom Murray, in the June 2018 edition of the Actuarial Post. The FCA have started their review process of firms providing retail investment advice through automated channels. They are trying to see how they can best regulate the new area of auto-advisers. Whilst it is still early days in this market, it is only at the evolutionary stage and there were only three firms examined, the potential for significant harm if they get it wrong is very great. The challenges for the FCA are great in trying to control an aspect of the industry that is only beginning to take on shape.
