Morrisons is not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. However, we are included on the Register maintained by the Financial Conduct Authority so that we can carry on insurance mediation activity in the UK, which is broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts. In certain circumstances, we are also able to offer a limited range of investment services provided they are complementary and incidental to the professional service you have asked us to provide. This part of our business, including arrangements for complaints or redress if something goes wrong, is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. The register can be accessed via the Financial Conduct Authority website at www.fca.org.uk/register.
The Law Society of England and Wales is the designated professional body for the purposes of the Financial Services and Market Act 2000 but responsibility for regulation and complaints handling has been separated from the Law Society’s representative function. The SRA is the independent regulatory body and the Legal Ombudsman is the independent complaints handling body. See below for more information regarding complaints.
