Cliverton is a trading name of Lycett, Browne-Swinburne & Douglass Ltd.
Lycett, Browne-Swinburne & Douglass Ltd (firm registration number 310623) is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
Lycetts Financial Services Ltd (firm registration number 121418) is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority (FSA), an independent body that regulates the financial services industry in the UK.
The FSA has four principal aims:
• To maintain confidence in the UK financial system by implementing a range of checks and procedures which include such tasks as supervising exchanges, settlement houses and other market infrastructure providers, conducting market surveillance and transaction monitoring.
• To promote public awareness of the financial system through helping people to gain the knowledge, aptitude and skills they need to become better informed and, therefore, better placed to manage their financial affairs more effectively.
• To secure the appropriate levels of protection for consumers through the authorisation of firms and individuals to maintain particular standards set by the FSA and by continuing to monitor the extent to which firms and individuals are meeting the standards set. The FSA vet firms and individuals prior to authorisation to ensure that firms and individuals meet strict criteria, such as honesty, competence and financial soundness, prior to engaging in regulated activity. If companies or individuals are found to be conducting financial business outside the rules, the FSA will investigate accordingly and, if appropriate, discipline or prosecute those responsible. Funds can be restored to consumers by the FSA.
• To reduce financial crime, particularly money laundering, fraud and dishonesty, and criminal market misconduct such as insider dealing. Further information is available on the FSA web site at www.fsa.gov.uk
