Market Oversight

In Market Oversight we work to ensure financial markets in the UK are fair and working effectively. We do this by promoting market standards and practices that balance the interests of all stakeholders and exposing and changing behaviours which threaten trust and confidence in our markets. Our work allows investors to have confidence in UK financial markets and plays a vital part in protecting our economy. From live monitoring of the stock market to detecting breaches of our rules, no day is the same in this varied and fast-paced environment.

Applications for our 2019 Market Oversight programme are now open. Please click here to apply. Applications for this programme will close on 25 November 2018 and the assessment centre will take place on 13 December.
