    UK watchdog warns financial firms over Big Data

    Britain's banks and insurers must take the lead in spelling out how they will use data collected from customers or they could face new rules, Financial Conduct Authority Chair Charles Randell said on Wednesday. Financial firms have been using Big Data on customers, which can include social media use, for example to price motor or health insurance more accurately. The use of Big Data requires good communication so that consumers understand and accept a firm's approach to using their data and don't end up being "disenfranchised", Randell said.

    UK watchdog urged to cap pension charges to end 'rip-offs'

    Britain's markets watchdog should cap charges on drawdown of pension savings after "glacial" progress in stopping customers being ripped off, a senior lawmaker said on Thursday. "The FCA found that, while consumers have welcomed the freedoms, some are at risk of harm," the regulator said, adding it was considering a cap on charges. This does not always provide value for money as people typically use their existing provider rather than shop around, the FCA said.
