THE FINANCIAL SERVICES AUTHORITY

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulate the financial services industry in the UK. Their aim is to protect consumers, ensure the industry remains stable and promote healthy competition between financial services providers.

To ensure a firm is regulated and approved by the FCA check their register before you hand over any money. Authorised firms are unlikely to contact you if you are not an existing customer. If you are contacted by a firm out of the blue make sure you ask for their contact details and then report it at this link.

The Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) is a part of the Bank of England and responsible for the prudential regulation and supervision of banks, building societies, credit unions, insurers and major investment firms. It sets standards and supervises financial institutions at the level of the individual firm.
