Financial Services Law

The UK Financial Services Law & Regulation Online service is specifically designed to provide the user with an easy to use and complete one-stop resource for all the regulatory and compliance material a financial services company needs in order to comply with regulatory requirements.


Financial institutions face a complex maze of regulatory requirements and risks. Compliance is critical and mandatory.

Better Regulation helps clients to navigate the labyrinth of legal and regulatory requirements.

'Gives me the peace of mind of knowing I am on top of changes'

This is a unique resource which provides all the documents you will ever need. Every document is consolidated and completely up-to-date with all amendments incorporated into the text of the original document. A history of amendments also provides a link to the previous version of the document so giving every version of a document from its genesis right up to its current most up-to-date position.

With links that can go from definition to definition, from rule to rule and statute to statutory instrument or European Directive to guidance by the regulator or industry body, this is an easy to use time saving resource that anyone can use.


'It makes my life so much easier and relieves stress and worry'

The service is kept completely up-to-date with live feeds of new material. You need never look elsewhere to keep on top of changes and new requirements whether in the UK or Europe. All new documents and any resulting amendments are speedily and seamlessly incorporated into existing documents.
