The FCA has issued a press release stating that it will be launching a new Financial Services Register on 7 September 2015. The new Register will have one search field to help readers find a firm, individual or collective investment scheme by looking up its name, reference number or postcode. Readers will also be able to search for certain investment exchanges. Search results on the new Register will include consumer credit firms that have interim permission. Also, firms that the FCA have been told that are providing regulated products or services without authorisation – or are knowingly running a scam – will also be included on the Register for the first time.
