FSA unveils latest roadshow dates

The Financial Services Authority is offering financial advisers, mortgage intermediaries and general insurance brokers free surgeries.

The surgeries take place in Cheltenham on July 17, Gloucester on July 18 and Swindon on July 19.

Surgeries are one-to-one appointments, lasting up to one hour, with a member of FSA staff at which firms can raise any regulatory queries and discuss whatever they need help with.

This follows a FSA roadshow to Chepstow in September.

Places for the surgeries can be booked online on the FSA web pages.
