FCA producing significantly more heavy fines during 2019

The UK Financial regulator “Financial Conduct Authority -FCA” has imposed more drastic sanctions in 2019 that ever before.

After the drop in fines to individuals in the compared period 2016 – 2017, and its stable value for 2017-2018, a significant raise in economic sanctions was noted tor the 2019 period.

Thye best way to address this change is to put in perspective that during 2017 (same as 2018) fines against the top 10 fined individuals accounted for £0,9 Million while for 2019 for the top 8 sanctioned individuals the amount was £80,2 Million.

In a similar way but in a more reduced proportion the total amount of fines tripled during the fiscal year ending on March 2019 with a total amount of £227, Million.
