WDPG App 12.1 Documentation, approval and maintenance

WDPG App 12.1.1G

1Firms should keep a written record of discussion of the wind-down planning exercise, and most importantly, the wind-down plan as the final output from that process.

WDPG App 12.1.2G

The final output – the wind-down plan – will be easier for its future users to implement if it is simply structured for ease of reference with sections such as:

  1. (1)

    governance process for wind-down scenario (WDPG App 6);

  2. (2)

    operational analysis for winding down (WDPG App 8);

  3. (3)

    estimated revenue/costs schedule of wind-down (WDPG App 9); and

  4. (4)

    resource assessment (WDPG App 10).

WDPG App 12.1.3G

The governing body of a firm should review and approve a wind-down plan and then maintain it by designating an accountable individual to own the document. This maintenance will ensure its reliability as an effective resource for the firm.
