FSCS declares 12 firms in default in March 2020

Regular notice that consumers could be in line for compensation

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) declared 12 failed regulated firms in default during March 2020. FSCS announces these declarations regularly, to let consumers know they could get back the money they have lost as a result of their dealings with any of those firms (listed below).

FSCS is the UK's statutory compensation scheme that protects customers of authorised financial services firms that carry out certain regulated activities. A declaration of default means FSCS is satisfied a firm is unable to pay claims for compensation made against it. This paves the way for customers of that firm to make a claim for compensation with FSCS. Since it began in 2001, FSCS has helped more than 4.5m people, paying out more than £26bn in compensation.

Lila Pleban, Interim Chief Communications and Marketing Officer, said: “At FSCS we know that our protection contributes to confidence in financial services, so we reach out to consumers who may be able to benefit from that protection by claiming against a failed firm. Our claims-handlers are empathetic and support is available throughout the process. The online claims portal provides the easy-to-use service our customers expect, and at lower cost to our levy-payers.”
