Financial services - regulation - retail depositors - UK.


The UK scheme that guarantees certain bank, building society or credit union depositors' funds - subject to limits - should the bank, building society or credit union fail.

The FSCS is funded by a levy on financial firms authorised and regulated by the UK's Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.

Similar deposit guarantee schemes operate in the majority of developed economies, under different names and with differing conditions and degrees of formality.
