…is an important, new, and exciting initiative that we are leading on and its taking place in London on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 24th.
The campaigning through the Rally will focus on our firm, evidence-based belief that the Financial Conduct Authority is not fit for purpose and that it needs to be robustly reformed, or if necessary replaced.
We are organising the Rally because we believe the financial sector is profoundly important to the wellbeing of society, to economic stability and to political stability too; but we also believe that society cannot have the financial sector it needs and deserves if the regulatory framework that governs it is poor.
Please note that whilst we think there is a great deal wrong with the Financial Conduct Authority, we do not believe the general staff are to blame at all. The vast majority of Financial Conduct Authority employees are honest, ethical, and hard-working people doing the best job they can. Rather, we believe the Financial Conduct Authority is “wrong at the top” and is subject to unhealthy external influences on it, for example from, HM Treasury, The City of London, the banks, and the financial sector’s major trade bodies such as UK Finance. UK Finance is known to have enormous resources and lobbying power that it uses very effectively.
We believe that the Financial Conduct Authority could, and should, be doing a much better job, particularly in relation to providing an appropriate degree of consumer protection.
The Rally starts at The Royal Courts of Justice, then travels down the Strand and Trafalgar Square to HM Treasury at Horseguards Road, then onto Downing Street and then to Parliament.
Given the importance of The Rally for Better Financial Regulation and that we plan for it to be an annual event, we have decided to create a dedicated website for it:
