StepChange Debt Charity response to FCA update on high-cost credit review
Thursday, 01 February 2018
Today the FCA issued an update on their review of high-cost credit, with concerning findings that a small minority of overdraft users are paying almost half of all overdraft charges, including high cost unarranged overdraft charges. This echoes StepChange Debt Charity’s recent research that 2 million people are stuck in persistent overdraft debt. The FCA should consider eliminating unarranged overdraft charges in their upcoming consultation, as they have previously stated they may not have a place in modern banking. The FCA should also work with banks to identify and support those in persistent overdraft debt.
