The Central Bank of Ireland’s proposals to introduce an Individual Accountability Framework and the Senior Executive Accountability Regime (SEAR) will present several additional challenges for financial institutions and their senior executives.

Although the timeframe for implementation is yet to be announced, it is crucial that firms take this opportunity to take stock of their current position, to address gaps, to enhance governance structures and transform existing operations to drive resilience and better outcomes for customers. 

Watch our webinar below on the actions you can take now to meet Individual Accountability with particular reference to the Fit and Proper Regime and SEAR requirements in Ireland.
