Transparency - Financial Conduct Authority


Published: 04/10/2014
Find out how we use transparency and disclosure to regulate the financial services industry.

As a public body, we should be as open and accountable as possible.

We are open to being scrutinised by consumers, firms and Parliament.

We have two new regulatory principles that make this transparency a priority.


  • publish information about regulated firms and individuals, or require them to do so
  • function as transparently as possible

We are continuing our debate into how the FCA and the financial services industry can be more transparent.
