Financial Services Compensation Scheme
You must read the Information Sheet which gives all the details of the FSCS and how you are covered.
The FSCS is the UK's statutory fund of last resort for customers of financial services firms. This means that the FSCS can pay compensation to consumers if a financial services firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims against it. The FSCS is an independent body, set up under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 (FSMA).
