Financial services firms can only operate in the UK if they are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or registered to do so, or are otherwise exempt. Unfortunately, there are firms in the UK and abroad that operate without FCA authorisation, and some knowingly run scams. You can check if a firm is authorised by the FCA, how to protect yourself from unauthorised firms, and the latest on FCA warnings and investigations on the FCA.org website.
We strongly advise you to only deal with financial services firms that are authorised by the FCA or registered, and check the Register to ensure they are. The Register has information on firms and individuals that are, or have been, regulated by the FCA. If a firm does not appear on the Register but claims it does, contact the FCA Consumer Helpline on 0800 111 6768. You can also check the details on the firm with Companies House and for Data Protection with the Information Commisioner's Office
