The annual Business Plan gives details of the specific areas of work the FCA is prioritising for the next year.
The priorities in this Business Plan reflect the speed and variety of changes affecting both wider society and financial services. Firms are being challenged by rapidly evolving user needs, as well as heightened uncertainty in the economic and political outlook. Our Business Plan shows how we will use our resources to tackle these challenges.
It explains our six priorities which cut across different financial sectors, as well as our priorities for the seven specific sectors we regulate. It also includes our Risk Outlook, which analyses the wider context in which we work and the risks we see in the market.
