Understanding FCA Prosecutions

The FCA is the regulator for financial services firms and financial markets in the UK. Their purpose is defined by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).

When the FCA considers that firms or individuals have not complied with the rules or breached their standards, then the Enforcement division of the FCA has wide-ranging powers in order to take action.

In fact, the FCA has multiple divisions, such as:

• Enforcement
• Authorisation
• Supervision
• Strategy
• Competition
