The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has admitted that 18 broker bosses were reprimanded via private warning between 2011 and 2017, Insurance Age can reveal.
A Freedom of Information (FOI) request showed that over the same time period only one insurer boss received a private warning.
According to the FCA website private warnings are “a more serious form of reprimand than would usually be made in the course of ongoing supervisory correspondence”.
