FSCS levy hike reignites call for separate broker pot


Brokers have reiterated the call to be put in a separate Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) pot after the indicative levy for intermediaries nearly doubled for 2020/21.

Last week, FSCS stated that the indicative levy for brokers for the next financial year was £23m, up from £12m in 2019/20.

The reason for the increase was a spike in claims relating to the mis-selling of PPI ahead of the complaints deadline in August 2019.
