The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), as the compensation scheme of last resort, can only provide compensation for claims connected with certain types of regulated activities. They are working closely with LCF’s administrators and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to understand more about LCF’s activities and whether there are grounds for compensation.
The FSCS is an independent non-governmental body. The FSCS carries out its compensation function within rules set by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the FCA, who are also independent of Government.
If there are circumstances that give rise to potentially valid claims, the FSCS will communicate this on their website. They have invited LCF investors to register for updates on their website. More information on this can be found at https://www.fscs.org.uk/failed-firms/lcf/.
