What is the Financial Services Compensation Scheme?

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is the compensation fund of last resort for customers of authorised financial services firms. The FSCS pays compensation for financial loss, and compensation limits are per person per firm. Should you be entitled to compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, you may be able to recover up to £75,000 for deposits and the first £50,000 of investments. If you require further information about compensation arrangements please contact the Financial Services Compensation Scheme on 0800 678 1100 or at 10th Floor, Beaufort House, 15 St Botolph Street, London, EC3A 7QU.
