The Directory is a new public register that will sit alongside the Financial Services Register.
It will provide details of certain individuals carrying out specific roles in UK financial services, including roles not requiring FCA approval, such as financial advisers, investment managers and directors not holding senior management functions (for example, non-executive directors). These individuals will be referred to as 'Directory persons'.
The Directory is due to go live in March 2020 but will initially only provide information on banking and insurance firms. Information on other firms, including threesixty clients will be made public in December 2020.
