During the next phase of the study, we will:
- continue to engage with firms, trade bodies and consumer groups
- consider in more detail the different forms of remedy that could be adopted, having regard to responses to our interim report
- publish the final report, setting out our findings
- consult on any proposed remedies.
Further work planned
We will continue to develop our thinking on whether the FCA should intervene in this market, and what interventions would be most effective in improving competition to the benefit of consumers, having regard to the further evidence we collect and views from stakeholders including in response to this interim report.
We expect to publish the final report in Spring 2016. The final report will set out our findings and conclusions. If appropriate, we will consult at the same time, or subsequently, on any proposed remedies.
We would like to hear your views on this report, including on the need for intervention and, if so, your views on what form it should take. Please send us written comments by 8 January 2016.
