ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the way the financial services industry caters to low income citizens and how legislators can address this problem in Great Britain. Concerns over the popularity of zero-interest schemes unregulated by the Financial Services Authority are taken into consideration by the legislators through encouraging banks to open branches in areas where people on low income groups were denied access to mainstream financial institutions.
