Although mortgages have been around for centuries, it wasn’t until 2004 that mortgages became a regulated product for the consumer market. Under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, the conduct of mortgage lenders is subject to regulation by the FCA.

Furthermore, mortgage lenders are subject to prudential regulation, which outlines the capital required by lenders to offset lending risks and mitigate wider financial instabilities. All home-owner mortgages are 100% regulated by the FCA and Richdale works with lenders across the UK to provide full compliance support and monitoring, ensuring the fair treatment of mortgage customers.

General insurance providers are regulated by both the FCA and the Prudential Regulatory Authority (PRA). The FCA regulates the business conduct of individual insurers to ensure business models are legitimate and that potential risks don’t impinge upon consumers and the wider economy.

Typically, our work with general insurance brokers involves periodic compliance audits to identify any areas of weakness, provide ongoing compliance support to help you keep on top of those weaknesses and prepare new applications for FCA authorisation to help brokers commence trading.

Consumer credit providers are required to meet and maintain the FCA’s threshold conditions at all times. We’ve helped many consumer credit firms achieve FCA authorisation and maintain compliance through bespoke education, training and ongoing support.

Since 1st April 2014, the regulation of consumer credit has been in the hands of the FCA and their standards remain justifiably high. Our highly-experienced compliance associates regularly work with consumer credit providers to help them understand their responsibilities as an FCA-authorised operation.
