The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) 

FSCS cover depends on the nature of the claim being made. In general terms, FSCS cover is not available on claims for loss of value resulting just from the poor performance of investments.

However, cover may be available for claims against authorised firms for loss arising from bad investment advice, poor investment management or misrepresentation. Most types of investment business are covered up to a maximum limit of £85,000.

This depends on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim. Insurance business is covered for 90% of the claim without any upper limit. However, on occasion we may advise on other financial instruments which are not regulated by the FCA under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

The FSCS does not apply to any of these or in other situations where the investment company counterparty is not located in the UK. We will inform you as appropriate in which circumstances FSCS protections do not apply.

Further information about compensation scheme arrangements is available from the FSCS, please contact 0800 678 1100 or visit
