The FCA regulates the financial services industry in the UK. Our aim is to protect consumers, ensure our industry remains stable and promote healthy competition between financial services providers.
We have rule-making, investigative and enforcement powers that we use to protect and regulate the financial services industry. We are fair and principled in our approach to regulation.
We want consumers to use financial services with confidence and have products that meet their needs, from firms and individuals they can trust.
To achieve this, we regulate firms and financial advisers so that markets and financial systems remain sound, stable and resilient. We also encourage transparent pricing that's easy for everyone to understand.
