The Financial Conduct Authority Expects to Announce Penalty on Santander UK

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is expected to announce a penalty of around GBP 12.5 million on Santander UK. It was decided that the bank would have to pay a fine after the FCA conducted a year-long investigation into its business. The main problems identified by the FCA across banks were that advisers failed to identify the level of risk customers were willing to take, did not take into consideration the length of time customers wanted to hold the investment and did not always take a customer's financial circumstances into account.
