UK Market Conduct

Course Outline


The course starts with a brief reminder of the regime that was introduced in 2005. This short introduction takes the learner through the scope of the rules and the consequences of any inappropriate behaviour. It is supported by a series of interactive exercises.


At the heart of the course is a series of case studies that show the practical application of the regime. These scenarios reiterate the basic rules and procedures, but in a real world context.

Currently the course offers two streams:

  • The Public Side
  • The Private Side

Further modules such as Asset Management and Support Functions are in development. Depending on the functionality of the LMS, it is possible to score the learner's performance on the case studies. If their score falls below certain thresholds they can then be made to take a short revision course before starting the course test. This quick revision session can be made a voluntary or mandatory element of the course.

Course test

The course concludes with a multiple choice test. The questions are randomly selected from a large question bank. The size of the test and the pass mark can be adjusted to any level.
