On 9 April 2018, the FCA published Discussion Paper 18/3: Ex post impact evaluation framework (DP18/3). In DP18/3 the FCA outlines how it intends to use ex post impact evaluation to assess the impact its interventions have had on consumers, firms and markets. It explains:

  • Why the FCA does ex post impact evaluation;
  • How the FCA chooses specific interventions to study; and
  • How the FCA ensures that its evaluations are robust, impartial, and therefore credible.

The deadline for comments on DP18/3 is 9 July 2018.
