Welcome to the FCA Practitioner Panel – a statutory body representing the interests of the financial services industry in the UK regulatory framework.
We have an important statutory role in providing early input and challenge to the policies and practices of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), whose job is to ensure that UK financial markets function well.
Members are selected as senior representatives from each of the major regulated sectors.
The views of the Practitioner Panel are independent of the FCA and our work is coordinated with the FCA's other Practitioner Panels. We liaise regularly with trade associations, but do not seek to duplicate their work.
Our Panel is part of the system that the FCA has to set up to make and maintain effective arrangements for consulting practitioners and consumers on the extent to which its general policies and practices are consistent with its general duties, as set out in the Financial Services Act 2012
