CMA brings forward investment consultant report date

The CMA has announced that it is bringing forward the date for publishing its final report on its investigation into the supply and acquisition of investment consultancy and fiduciary management services in the UK.

Having considered the responses to its Provisional Decision Report, the CMA has announced that it will aim to publish its final report before the end of 2018 (the statutory deadline for publication is 13 March 2019). The moving forward of the timetable means that respondents now have until the end of October to provide their responses and submissions for consideration by the Inquiry Group, before it reaches its final decision.

Comments have been invited on the Provisional Decision Report.
