Financial Services Authority
The FINANCIAL SERVICES AUTHORITY (FSA) was a quasi-judicial body responsible for the regulation of the financial services industry in the United Kingdom between 2001 and 2013. It was founded as the SECURITIES AND INVESTMENTS BOARD ("SIB") in 1985. Its board was appointed by the Treasury , although it operated independently of government. It was structured as a company limited by guarantee and was funded entirely by fees charged to the financial services industry. Due to perceived regulatory failure of the banks during the financial crisis of 2007–2008 , the UK government decided to restructure financial regulation and abolish the FSA. On 19 December 2012, the Financial Services Act 2012 received royal assent , abolishing the FSA with effect from 1 April 2013. Its responsibilities were then split between two new agencies: the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority of the Bank of England

Company Limited By Guarantee
In British and Irish company law , a COMPANY LIMITED BY GUARANTEE (LBG) is an alternative type of corporation used primarily for non-profit organisations that require legal personality . A company limited by guarantee does not usually have a share capital or shareholders , but instead has members who act as guarantors. The guarantors give an undertaking to contribute a nominal amount (typically very small) in the event of the winding up of the company. A company limited by guarantee can distribute its profits to its members, if allowed to by its articles of association , but then it would not be eligible for charitable status. Limited companies can convert to a Community Interest Company (CIC) which feature an asset lock which prevents the extraction of profits. Like a private company limited by shares , a company limited by guarantee must include the suffix "Limited" in its name, except in circumstances specifically excluded by law

Royal Assent
ROYAL ASSENT or SANCTION is the method by which a country's monarch (possibly through a delegated official) formally approves an act of that nation's parliament. In certain nations, such assent makes the act law (promulgation ) while in other nations assent is distinct from promulgation. In the vast majority of contemporary monarchies, this act is considered to be little more than a formality; even in those nations which still permit their monarchs to withhold royal assent (such as the United Kingdom, Norway
Norway
, and Liechtenstein ), the monarch almost never does so, save in a dire political emergency or upon the advice of their government. While the power to withhold royal assent was once exercised often in European monarchies, it is exceedingly rare in the modern, democratic political atmosphere that has developed there since the 18th century. Royal assent

is sometimes associated with elaborate ceremonies
