ABSTRACT
The article presents the views of the author on role of Great Britain Financial Services Authority (FSA). He opines that it seems to him that the FSA assumes it is easier to regulate a small number of large organizations than a large number of small ones. However, overburdening organizations with regulations means they spend less time delivering the best service to their clients.
