About FCA - Financial Conduct Authority
There are few jobs where you can make a real difference to the two million people who work in the UK financial services industry, the 40 million consumers of financial products, and the stability of our economy as a whole.
We aim to make financial markets work well so that consumers get a fair deal. We do this by securing an appropriate degree of protection for consumers; by protecting and enhancing the integrity of the UK financial system; and by promoting effective competition in the interests of consumers.
Our remit has expanded significantly since our creation in 2013, with the number of firms we regulate growing from 23,000 to over 56,000. We oversee conduct across the full span of the financial sector from global investment banks to high street payday lenders, and are now implementing a new strategy that will sharpen our focus to face the regulatory challenges ahead.
Our people are integral to our success as an organisation, working alongside industry, visiting firms and speaking to consumers every day as we strive to ensure we are setting the standard for other regulatory bodies across the world.
