Investments - Financial Conduct Authority

Find out about some investment options and products, tips on how to get financial advice and what we do to make sure the advice you get is right for you.

Investing your money can help it grow over time but also comes with risks. Investments can go down as well as up, and there is no guarantee you will get back all the money that you invest.

Promoting, selling, managing and advising on investments are regulated activities, which means firms involved must be authorised by us. We also ensure many investment products and schemes are set up to meet the needs of investors.
