Surveys and Research

The Practitioner Panel and its predecessor Panel were committed to undertaking a regular Survey of Regulated Firms to build up a continuous picture of how the industry’s view of the regulatory framework is developing. In addition, the Panel occasionally undertakes independent research to inform its views and enable it to gain evidence and data to support its opinions.

Survey of Regulated Firms

The Practitioner Panel published its latest Survey on the views of regulated firms on 15 July 2014.  This was the first version of the survey undertaken since the creation of the FCA. The research focused on the perceived effectiveness of the new organisation and firms' relationship with the regulator.

Consumer Responsibility Research

In early 2013, the Practitioner Panel commissioned independent research to consider firms' and consumers' views around the concept of consumer responsibility, to identify any gaps between them and to suggest ways in which these might be addressed.
