Financial Conduct Authority

Financial Conduct Authority
Last activity: 12.07.2024
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulates the conduct of nearly 60,000 businesses. We aim to make sure that financial markets work well so that consumers get a fair deal.

We want consumers to have access to financial services products that meet their needs, from firms they can trust.

To support this, we deliver our work through three objectives:
• To secure an appropriate degree of protection for consumers
• To protect and enhance the integrity of the UK financial system
• To promote effective competition in the interests of consumers.

We are accountable to the Treasury – which is responsible for the UK’s financial system – and Parliament. However, we’re an independent body and we do not receive any funding from the Government. We are funded entirely by the firms that we regulate.

The FCA is proud to be ranked on Glassdoor as a top 10 UK company for work/life balance. With us, you will find opportunities to make a difference on a national scale, and develop skills and insights that you wouldn’t find anywhere else. Visit to discover our latest opportunities.

The FCA is one of the UK’s two financial regulators, together with the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA).
