FSA is consulting on guidance on selling insurance through price comparison websites. The guidance sets out FSA’s concerns about how these sites operate and asks firms to check they are appropriately authorised, deal only with appropriately authorised companies and check disclosure and other customer documents are compliant with FSA’s rules. It also asks firms to check they have adequate anti-financial crime controls. Addressing these issues will help to address FSA’s concerns that operators of these sites breach Principle 6 on treating customers fairly. The draft guidance sets out the results of FSA’s review and highlights specific areas of concern. FSA asks for comments by 8 August.
