A New Approach to Financial Regulation:The End of the United Kingdom FSA

August 6, 2010

The Consultation follows the announcement by the Chancellor of the Exchequer that the UK Financial Services Authority will be abolished, prudential supervisory powers returned to the Bank of England, and the ‘tripartite system’ of financial regulation brought to an end.
