Organisational structure

FSCS's conduct is the responsibility of its Board of Directors. Under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 (FSMA), the UK regulators (the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority) appoint the directors on terms which ensure they run FSCS independently of the UK regulators. The Chair and Chief Executive Officer's appointment (and removal) are subject to Treasury approval.

FSCS is independent from the UK regulators, although accountable to them.
