SUP 12.1.3GRP
The chapter also sets out the FCA'srules, and guidance on these rules, that apply to a firm before it appoints, when it appoints and when it has appointed an appointed representative.

BIPRU 12.8.6GRP
The appropriate regulator anticipates that an application to modify the overall liquidity adequacy rule may be accompanied by an application to waive or modify other rules in BIPRU 12 (for example, the stress testing and contingency funding planrules in BIPRU 12.4). The appropriate regulator offers some guidance in this section on applications of this type.
BIPRU 12.8.7GRP
The appropriate regulator recognises that a firm may be part of a wider group which manages its liquidity on a group-wide basis. A firm which considers that the statutory tests in section 138A of the Act are met may apply for an intra-group liquidity modification permitting it to rely on liquidity support from elsewhere in its group. Until a firm has such a modification it will need to meet the overall liquidity adequacy rule from its own liquidity resources. The effect of an

PERG 8.12.22GRP
Article 19(4) sets out conditions which, if all are satisfied, offer conclusive proof that a financial promotion is directed only at investment professionals. These conditions relate to indications accompanying the financial promotion and the existence of proper systems and procedures.

IFPRU 2.2.2GRP
BIPRU 12 contains rules and guidance relating to the adequacy of a firm's liquidity resources. In assessing the adequacy of its liquidity resources, a firm should do so by reference to the overall liquidity adequacy rule, rather than the overall financial adequacy rule.
IFPRU 2.2.9GRP
(1) This paragraph gives guidance on some of the terms used in the overall Pillar 2 rule.(2) In a narrow sense, business risk is the risk to a firm that it suffers losses because its income falls or is volatile relative to its fixed cost base. However, in a broader sense, it is exposure to a wide range of macro-economic, geopolitical, industry, regulatory and other external risks that might deflect a firm from its desired strategy and business plan. IFPRU 2.3.47 G to IFPRU 2.3.54
IFPRU 2.2.36RRP
The general stress and scenario testing rule in IFPRU 2.2.37 R and related rules and guidance apply to a significant IFPRU firm.
IFPRU 2.2.78GRP
This section contains guidance on the assessment required by IFPRU 2.2.7 R (2)(k) for a firm exposed to pension obligation risk as defined in IFPRU 2.2.8 R (5).
IFPRU 2.2.85GRP
This section contains additional guidance on the assessment required by IFPRU 2.2.7 R (2)(l) (Group risk).
The guidance in this appendix for step 1 applies in relation to complaints about sales whenever the sale took place.1 For complaints about sales that took place prior to 14 January 2005, a firm should take account of the evidential provisions in this appendix for step 1 1as if they were guidance.
1The evidential provisions and guidance for step 2 apply in relation to complaints received by CCA lenders about sales where the payment protection contract covers or covered or purported to cover (this includes partial coverage) a credit agreement.
PERG 6.2.1GRP
The purpose of this guidance is to set out:(1) at PERG 6.5 the general principles; and(2) at PERG 6.6 the range of specific factors;that the FCA regards as relevant in deciding whether any arrangement is a contract of insurance.
PERG 6.2.2GRP
This guidance includes (at PERG 6.7) a number of examples, showing how the factors have been applied to reach conclusions with respect to specific categories of business. Further examples may be published from time-to-time.
PERG 8.3.2GRP
Section 21 of the Act does not itself (other than in its heading and side-note) refer to a ‘financial promotion’ but rather to the communication of ‘an invitation or inducement (a)1 to engage in investment activity or (b) to engage in claims management activity1’. References in this guidance to a financial promotion mean an invitation or inducement to engage in investment activity or to engage in claims management activity1.
PERG 8.3.5GRP
In addition, this guidance deals with other factors such as when the exemptions in the Financial Promotion Order can be applied, including the exemptions relating to territorial scope and one-off financial promotions.
SYSC 13.2.1GRP
SYSC 13 provides guidance on how to interpret SYSC 3.1.1 R and SYSC 3.2.6 R, which deal with the establishment and maintenance of systems and controls, in relation to the management of operational risk. Operational risk has been described by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision as "the risk of loss, resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems, or from external events". This chapter covers systems and controls for managing risks concerning any
SYSC 13.2.2GRP
Operational risk is a concept that can have a different application for different firms. A firm should assess the appropriateness of the guidance in this chapter in the light of the scale, nature and complexity of its activities as well as its obligations as set out in Principle 3, to organise and control its affairs responsibly and effectively.
PERG 6.4.1GRP
Although what appears below is the FCA's approach, it cannot state what the law is, as that is a matter for the courts. Accordingly, this guidance is not a substitute for adequate legal advice on any transaction.
PERG 6.4.2GRP
The list of principles and factors is not closed and this guidance by no means covers all types of insurance-like business.
CASS 1A.1.1RRP
(1) 1Subject to (2), (3) and (4)3, this2 chapter applies to a firm to which either or both of CASS 6 (Custody rules) and CASS 7 (Client money rules) applies.23(2) In relation to a firm to which CASS 5 (Client money: insurance distribution6 activity) and CASS 7 (Client money rules) apply, this chapter does not apply in relation to client money that a firm holds in accordance with CASS 5. (3) The rules and guidance in CASS 1A.2 apply to a firm even if at the date of the determination
