Closure of Financial Conduct Authority Investigations

19 September 2018

Quilter plc ("Quilter") notes the announcement by The Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") this morning that its remaining investigations into firms, following its thematic review into the fair treatment of longstanding customers in the life insurance sector, have each been closed.

The FCA has stated that the conduct of Old Mutual Wealth Life Assurance Limited ("OMWLA"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Quilter, did not warrant enforcement action. The FCA has also stated that, as with other firms that were subject to the investigation, some issues have been identified during the investigations, and these are being addressed with the FCA as part of the ongoing supervision of OMWLA.  OMWLA's voluntary remediation programme announced in March 2018 continues and is unaffected by today's announcement.
