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. The information contained in these Sector Views is based on the data situation and our view at mid-2017.
Sector Views are published annually on our website, 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
