UK Regulator Clamps Down on 1,400% More Rogue Financial Ads in 2022

<p>The United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) rejected 8,582
financial promotions in 2022 and sought their amendment or removal by authorized firms. This is approximately 1,400% more than the 573 financial promotions the regulator kicked against in 2021.</p><p>FCA disclosed the figures on Friday in a statement, noting that it
published over 1,800 scam alerts last year to protect investors against
scammers. </p><p>The increase in intervention comes as the financial markets regulator said it has made "significant improvements to the digital tools" it
deploys to fish out problematic firms and their misleading adverts. This made it possible for the regulator to work on a larger number of cases than in 2021.</p><p>Furthermore, FCA said <a href="" target="_blank" rel="follow">'fin-fluencers'</a> have become a growing source of

The regulator <a href="">first proposed a new set of consumer
duties</a> for financial firms in May 2021 and previously set July 2022 as the date to kick-off enforcement following its public consultation.  </p><p>"Under the Duty, firms will need to demonstrate that they are providing
