Cash savings: Sunlight remedy
We published three reports into cash savings account rates under our sunlight remedy, these data followed on from our cash savings market study. This remedy aims to bring to light firms’ strategies towards their longstanding consumers. The data display the lowest interest rates available on open and closed easy access savings accounts and easy access cash ISAs as at 1 October 2015, 1 April 2016 and 1 October 2016.
There have been failings in the sales of payment protection insurance (PPI) and interest rate hedging products (IRHPs). We require firms that are paying redress for PPI and IRHP to send us certain information, which we use to monitor their progress in reviewing cases and compensating affected consumers.
Complaints against FCA
The Financial Services Act 2012 requires the FCA, the Prudential Regulation Authority and the Bank of England to have in place arrangements for the investigation of complaints against them.
Consumer Contact Centre
The consumer contact centre is the main point of contact for consumers of financial services firms who want to interact with the FCA; it handles more than 100,000 contacts a year. The data shows that consumers contact the regulator about a wide range of financial products and for a variety of reasons.
Consumer Credit Authorisations
We published updates on the authorisation process for consumer credit firms. These included key performance indicators and information about how we performed.
Our Data Bulletins used to provide insight into the different data that we collect and use – from data about the markets we regulate, consumer behaviour and our own operations. Content previously published in Data Bulletins will be published on the Data section, but not as Data Bulletins.
Financial Advice Market Review (FAMR) baseline report
We have identified a range of indicators which have been designed to give us a snapshot of the market for financial advice and establish a baseline, allowing us to monitor developments and assess at a high level the impact of the FAMR recommendations, when conducting a review of the outcomes of FAMR, planned for 2019.
Some sources of the indicators are already available on a regular basis, such as the Financial Lives Survey, our Retail Mediation and Activities Return (RMAR) and complaints data.
We publish statistics about how we review and act on certain financial promotions.
Firms we regulate
We published an overview of the different firms we regulate broken down by type, region/area and classification. More information about the sectors we regulate and firms in them is available in our Sector Views.
Hedge Fund survey
We collected data from hedge funds and hedge fund managers to inform our supervisory activity, with the aim of ensuring markets work well and of promoting market integrity. Our report outlines the key findings resulting from our data analysis of the hedge fund industry.
Interest rate hedging products (IRHP)
In 2012, we identified failings in the way that some banks sold structured collars, swaps, simple collars and cap products, which we collectively refer to as IRHPs. The banks involved agreed to review their sales of IRHPs made to unsophisticated customers since 2001.
We published analysis on trends in regulated mortgage lending market. We show high level trends in regulated mortgage lending drawn from the regular data that we collect and publish via our two main mortgage datasets: Product Sales Data (PSD) and the Mortgage Lenders and Administrators Return (MLAR).
We need a view of how the financial system works as a whole, as well as within its individual sectors and markets. To develop this view, we divide the system into sectors and monitor them continuously. Our Sector Views bring our collective intelligence together and give an overall FCA view of how each sector is performing.
