To help ensure this we regulate banks, building societies, credit unions and other firms that accept deposits and provide banking products that most of us use regularly. This means these firms have to be authorised by us.
Millions of us use banks and building societies each day without anything going wrong. However, when problems do arise it helps to know what you can do to challenge your bank.
