UK Property Finance is committed to safe, responsible and transparent practices
What is the FCA?
The Financial Conduct Authority, or FCA, is a non-governmental organisation in the UK that acts as a regulatory body for the financial services industry. Its primary role includes protecting consumers, ensuring the industry remains stable and promoting healthy competition between financial service providers.
For a UK finance company to be FCA registered, it means that the company adheres to the strict standards and conducts set by the authority. Being registered under the FCA ultimately signifies trustworthiness, credibility and transparency.

Benefits to the Client
Choosing an FCA-registered service provider offers several advantages. Most importantly, it provides a higher level of consumer protection. The FCA ensures that registered companies adhere to strict rules and regulations, including treating customers fairly, providing clear information and handling complaints effectively.
As a consumer, dealing with an FCA-regulated financial provider ensures your rights are protected, thereby ensuring you are not misled or treated unfairly. Furthermore, the FCA promotes transparency, meaning an FCA-registered company like UK Property Finance is required to ensure all communication and marketing materials are easy to understand and not misleading, giving you complete peace of mind.
What is the ICO?
The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest. The ICO promotes openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals, giving you security and peace of mind when you share your personal data with registered organisations.
Is it Necessary to Be Registered With the ICO?
It is necessary for some UK companies, especially those that collect, store, or process personal data, to register with the ICO. However, registration is not always necessary and several exemptions may apply depending on the nature of the business and its dealings with data. Nonetheless, ICO registration is a firm indication of a service provider’s commitment to safe and responsible practices, showing their dedication to protecting your data.
As an FCA and ICO registered broker, UK Property Finance’s clients can rest assured that we adhere to the highest standards of integrity, transparency and data protection. These registrations underscore our single-minded commitment to offering secure, reliable and trustworthy financial services.
