financial conduct authority (fca) investigations

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) possesses substantial powers to investigate breaches of conduct by businesses or individuals placed in charge of providing financial services. They can impose severe penalties that can have a devastating impact on a company.

If you, or your business, is being investigated by the FCA, it is important to seek legal advice and guidance at the first possible opportunity. Contact our solicitors today by calling 0161 827 9500, or by filling in our contact form.

The armoury of the FCA is far reaching, placing a strain on those offering financial services, including banks, building societies, estate agents, lawyers, accountants and even casinos.

  • Insider dealing
  • Mis-selling
  • Using misleading statements or practices
  • Money laundering
  • Land banking fraud
  • Carbon credit fraud
