ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the performance of the General Insurance Standard Council (GISC) and the Insurance Brokers Registration Council (IBRC) in the financial services industry of Great Britain before the Financial Services Authority (FSA) were established. The author inferred that IBRC was more worried about the nomenclature of its members than properly regulating the sector while GISC was more disappointing because it allowed consumers to be sold with uncompetitive products on a large scale.
