Financial services

A healthy economy needs a healthy financial system – it helps businesses to invest and grow, undertake day-to-day transactions and manage their risks, underpinning activity in every part of society

The financial services industry plays a critical role in supporting UK businesses and enabling the UK's economy to grow. The products and services it offers are a significant part of the UK economy in their own right, and form one of our few world-class sectors.

The importance of financial services in a modern economy means it is essential that financial reforms support economic growth and help to build a competitive and resilient financial system that is free from taxpayer support and is co-ordinated internationally. The CBI's unique cross-sector voice speaks on behalf of the users of financial services as well as firms from across the financial services sector.
