Consumers - Financial Conduct Authority


We want you to understand the financial products and services you use, and for firms to be clear about how they could affect your money, savings and investments.

Our role is to regulate financial services firms in the UK, including banks and building societies, mortgage and insurance brokers, and financial advisers.
