Insurance - Financial Conduct Authority


Last Modified: 12/09/2014
Insurance can help protect you when things go wrong. There are many types of insurance but before taking out any cover you should make sure you at least understand:
  •  that the insurance is right for your circumstances;
  •  the terms and conditions of the policy, to ensure it would cover you; and
  •  whether the price of the policy might rise or fall in the future.

Promoting, arranging and providing insurance are regulated activities, which means firms providing these services, or insurance products, must be authorised by us.
