We are asking a number of the firms we regulate to complete a short survey to help us obtain a more accurate view of firms’ financial resilience as a result of coronavirus (Covid-19).
February 2021 update
In June-August 2020, we issued the first phase of the coronavirus impact survey. We then repeated this survey in September-November. The survey has helped us obtain an accurate view of the impact of coronavirus and supported our work to mitigate risks of harm to consumers, the market and competition within it.
We are now repeating this survey for a third time, having already sent a third survey to firms in Tranche 1 in January 2021. This will help to understand the change in firms’ financial positions over time.
It is mandatory to complete this survey.
On 22 February, a tailored Covid-19 impact survey was sent to solo-regulated, former inward passporting firms now in the Temporary Permissions Regime and in Supervisory Run-Off. Completion is also mandatory for this population by 15 March 2021.
We will use the data provided, alongside existing data, to support our ongoing work. We expect to repeat this survey in the future.
We know firms will be concerned about phishing emails and scams. When you receive the survey, please check it is from either [email protected] or an @fca.org.uk email address.
If you have any questions you can contact our Supervision Hub.
