Who is the FCA?
The FCA, short for, the Financial Conduct Authority, is the UK’s regulator for financial services firms and financial markets. It regulates over 58,000 financial services firms in the UK. It is an independent public body and is funded by the fees it charges the firms it regulates. The Financial Conduct Authority is responsible to the Treasury.
The Financial Conduct Authority regulates firms that provide regulated services, such as, consumer credit, payment services, electronic money, lending, insurance, wealth management, claims management and investment services.
The Financial Conduct Authority has three key operational objectives. These are, protecting consumers, protecting financial markets, and promoting competition within financial services.
The FCA expects firms to meet a range a requirements before it allows them to provide regulated financial services. When an applicant firm submits an application seeking authorisation, the FCA reviews their business plans, risks, budget, resources, systems, controls and its people. The later are expected to have the necessary qualifications, experience and ability to carry out their role effectively.
