Financial Conduct Authority

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.

Our aim is to help firms put the interests of their customers and the integrity of the market at the core of what they do.
