Banned and disqualified people
You can check our 'banned and disqualified' register for the names of people who have been banned from giving financial advice or directors who have been banned from managing a company.
How do I find information about a financial adviser?
The 'Financial adviser register' has details on all appointed financial advisers. This includes their employment history and product authorisations.
Checking an investment company or scheme
Before you invest you should check to see if the investment company is operating legally. Proper checks on an investment company or product can mean the difference between losing your money to a shonky dealer and getting a great deal from a legitimate business.
