We’re regulated and authorised by the FCA

Financial markets need to be honest, competitive, and fair to ensure consumers receive a fair deal. The FCA works to ensure that these markets function effectively for individuals, businesses, and the growth and competitiveness of the UK economy.

What is the FCA?

The Financial Conduct Authority is an independent public body, accountable to the Treasury.

The FCA grants authorisation to companies, organisations and individuals to carry out certain activities, only once they have demonstrated that they meet specific standards.

Financial services impact all areas of our lives

In the UK, the financial services sector employ over 1.1 million people and contributes around £75 billion in tax per year.

It’s therefore important for the FCA to ensure financial markets are honest, fair, and effective for consumers, businesses, and individuals.
