Policy & Guidance

We aim to ensure members have access to the information and tools needed to adapt and thrive, while meeting regulatory and compliance obligations.

The regulatory landscape is constantly evolving, while rapid developments in technology are changing the face of financial services. We publish an extensive range of reports and publications on the topics and issues facing businesses, consumers and the banking and finance industry, from policy papers and data and statistics, through to research reports. We work with in-house expertise, members, government and regulators to develop policy and guidance, including industry-wide standards such as the Invoice Finance and Asset-Based Lending Standards Framework. As a collective voice for the banking and finance industry, UK Finance provides detailed responses to regulator and government-driven consultations, looking to shape the best outcome for our members and their customers and ensure proportionate and measured results.
