Financial Services and Markets Act 2023 Makes Progress with Royal Ascent

Subscribe to our newsletter

The Financial Services and Markets Act 2023 has received royal ascent on route to delivering the UK Government’s vision of growing the economy and creating an open, sustainable, and technologically advanced financial services sector. Post-Brexit, the act tailors financial services regulation to fit UK markets and is expected to increase UK competitiveness as a global financial centre and deliver better outcomes for consumers and businesses.

New powers include reforms to Solvency II, which are calculated to unlock around £100 billion for investment, and secondary objectives for the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) to facilitate the growth and international competitiveness of the UK economy. This will be backed up by changes to enhance the scrutiny and accountability of the regulators, including ensuring regular reporting and a greater focus on cost-benefit analyses.
