FSCS declares 15 firms in default in February 2020
Regular notice that consumers could be in line for compensation
The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) declared 15 failed regulated firms in default during February 2020. FSCS announces these declarations regularly, to let consumers know they could get back 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.
Fiona Kidy, FSCS’s Acting Chief Financial Officer, said: “We are reaching out to consumers to let them know that compensation may be available if they have suffered losses due to a failed firm. We are a free and independent service and customers can claim direct with FSCS with confidence in our efficient process. FSCS is here to protect consumers and contribute to financial stability. We help customers throughout the UK and are proud of the empathetic service we deliver.”
