The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) can also help. It is an independent watchdog set up by government to regulate financial services and protect your rights. By law, most financial services firms must be authorised by the FCA. They ensure that all authorised firms are run in a prudent and financially sound way and regulate the way many (but not all) of them do business with you.
