A decision like this will harm the publics confidence in dealing with advisors, and it is critical in weeding out those rogue advisors, who are damaging the reputation of other advisors and hte industry
"It's vital that the FCA undertakes reviews such as this to ensure that the public can have confidence in the people they are dealing with on all matters money-related. The sad reality is the regulator doesn't have the resources to do the job it's tasked with."
