The CF10A is that poor, sainted soul who is responsible in your organisation for its compliance with the FCA’s CASS client money and client asset rules. Such a person, if not of a naturally anxious or timid disposition, will rapidly become so upon realising the hellish job of managing this regulatory risk, and the potentially personal liability that attaches to any screw-ups.
