Money Marketing (Online Edition);4/17/2012, p11
The article presents the author's views on the efforts of the payment protection industry to self-regulate itself. He says that he was one of the people, filing early complaints about payment protection insurance. According to him, the British Financial Services Authority (ASA) is not able to deal with market abuse, as its span of control is very wide for such a technical job. Therefore, he says that a self-regulatory protection code of conduct is required for self-regulation of the market.
