In the past, miss-selling, misconduct, malpractice, and even fraud, has resulted in billions of pounds in fines, compensation, and other penalties for the UK's financial services industry. These penalties have negatively affected pension plan holders, shareholders, savers, and investors – not to mention the economy at large – and that's why it's essential for financial services firms and markets to be regulated. This is the purpose of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
