Chief Executive's statement
In her inaugural introduction to Outlook, CEO Caroline Rainbird provides an update of FSCS vision for the 2020s – Protecting the Future – that is set across the four pillars of Prepare, Protect, Promote and Prevent. This includes work with regulatory colleagues to tackle phoenixing, one of the areas of focus of the Prevent pillar.
