UK FINANCE RESPONDS TO FCA’S OUTCOME OF HIGH-COST CREDIT REVIEW Responding to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)'s publication of the outcome of its high-cost credit review, Eric Leenders, Managing Director, Personal Finance at UK Finance said: “People up and down the country use credit as a helpful means of managing their everyday spending, so we have been working closely with the regulator to develop alerts for customers who may be about to slip into the red as well as a range of prompts that make it much easier to keep on top of finances and reduce costs. The industry is also introducing proactive support where persistent use of an overdraft facility might be a symptom of financial difficulty. We will continue to work closely with the FCA to make overdrafts more transparent and ensure customers take full advantage of the banking services available to them.”
