Protection and regulation


It’s important to know that you and your money are adequately protected, particularly when it’s taken you a lifetime of hard work to save. The UK is one of the world’s leading providers of financial products and services, so it should come as no surprise that it is also one of the most highly regulated countries where both product providers and financial intermediaries have to adhere to very strict rules on what, how and when they sell you financial products and services. There are a number of organisations and initiatives that you may have heard of, and here we tell you more about who they are and what they do.
