fca regulations

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is in charge of regulating the financial services industry in the UK. The regulatory body has the power to prosecute those who have committed criminal acts, including insider dealing, market fixing, and the mis-selling of products, and often work with the police to bring people to prosecution.

Our FCA solicitors are experts in helping those facing allegations of criminal activity by preparing those accused for interview, responding to requests and representing individuals in tribunals. To speak to one of our lawyers about your case, call us on 0161 827 9500 today. Alternatively, fill in our contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

types of fca offences

The organisation’s responsibility is to investigate and prosecute those guilty of committing financial misconduct. This includes:

  • Insider dealing
  • Market abuse
  • Product mis-selling
  • Market fixing
  • FCA principles breaches
  • Compliance

Penalties imposed on a business by the FCA include fines, warning notices, and the withdrawal of financials permissions and authorisations, meaning it’s important to seek legal advice if you’re facing allegations to try and reduce the impact of a prosecution.
