FSCS will provide an overview of its role and share details of some recent insurance failures, together with the lessons learnt. They will also touch on the 2021/22 levy, explain what they’re doing to help reduce this, provide an update on how they are manging the impact of Covid-19 and finish by looking at Brexit.
