Third Party Managed Accounts Webinar

Although not yet widespread, more law firms are starting to consider the use of a Third-Party Managed Account (TMPA) as an alternative to handling client money. Solicitors can outsource the operation of its client account to a separate FCA-regulated entity.

On 3 November 2020 we held a free webinar to provide firms with an increased understanding and explain the many benefits of Third Party Managed Accounts.

Key Content

  • Overview of Third Party Managed Accounts
  • How Third Party Managed Accounts work for law firms
  • Benefits and added protection of Third Party Managed Accounts
  • Q&A


We are pleased to share a copy of the Third Party Managed Accounts Webinar Slides with you.
