The Isle of Man Financial Services Authority ("the Authority") maintains registers of regulated entities that can be found here. You can check this list to see whether the firm you are dealing with holds a licence from us.
- Advertisements, whether online or in the press, often appear for non-licenceholders or non-regulated products. Protect yourself by checking who you are dealing with and whether the service or product is regulated. The Authority regulates the providers of financial products and services, but (with the exception of some collective investment and retirement benefit schemes) it does not regulate products.
- If you think someone is seeking to offer you financial products or services without a suitable licence, or outside the terms of their licence, please contact us via +44 (0)1624 689314 (telephone), +44 (0)1624 689399 (fax), or firstname.lastname@example.org . We will be able to give you guidance on whether the person should be licensed by us or another body, or whether the financial product or service needs a licence.
- If you are offered insurance or pensions products, further information on how the providers of these products are regulated is available here . Information on policyholder protection for insurance business is available here
- The Isle of Man has an ombudsman scheme, (which is a free, independent dispute resolution service), for some financial services – here is a link to its website.
