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. This information is inevitably retrospective. The information in these Sector Views covers the period between June 2015 and November 2016.
In the future we will publish individual Sector Views on our website once a year, three months after our Board has approved the content.
What is in our Sector Views?
The Sector Views cover all the markets we regulate, grouped into 7 sectors:
- retail banking
- retail lending
- general insurance and protection
- pensions and retirement income
- retail investments
- investment management
- wholesale financial markets
