FCA Call for Input – High-cost credit consultation

calendar14 February 2017

CAP has responded to the FCA’s most recent consultation about the high-cost credit, a topic of great importance to us. We were pleased that the FCA had set a broad scope for this consultation as we would like to see consumer protection in place across a wider variety of credit products.
