UK: Liz Truss to pledge a review of three financial watchdogs, report says
UK foreign secretary Liz Truss is reportedly going to review the roles of three financial watchdogs if elected. This comes as Truss has apparently expressed concern over the country’s economic growth.
A source in Truss’s campaign said Thursday, according to the Financial Times, that Truss will look into three financial regulators as part of a review. The regulators involved are the Financial Conduct Authority, the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority, and the Payment Systems Regulator.
“No decisions have been made on the future of regulators,” said the source. “She’s clear that there has not been enough focus on economic growth.”
As one of the two candidates to replace Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Truss pledged to cut taxes to mitigate the impact of the rising prices on households. Truss and her supporters have previously suggested that the government should play a bigger role in the operations of the Bank of England as inflation moves past 10 percent, five times higher than the target level of the BoE.
However, BoE Governor Andrew Bailey said independent regulators play a part in Britain’s standing as a global financial center. The FCA, under chief executive Nikhil Rathi, is also undergoing internal changes following its response to the handling of investment firm London Capital & Finance.
