Companies seeking to admit securities to the Official List must apply to the UK Listing Authority (UKLA), a division of the Financial Conduct Authority.</p><p> </p><p>The UKLA is responsible for assessing the eligibility of any potential issuer and approving the prospectus of any company that wishes to list its securities on the London Stock Exchange. The UKLA can request advice from the Office of Financial Sanctions (OFSI), which is part of HM Treasury, in relation to UN, UK or EU sanctions but responsibility for the admission of companies to the Official List lies with the UKLA.</p><p> </p><p>OFSI assesses all reported suspected breaches of UN, EU or UK financial sanctions to determine whether a breach has occurred and if so, the extent of any breach before taking action. OFSI refers the most serious cases to the National Crime Agency (&quot;NCA&quot;) for criminal investigation.</p><p> </p><p>The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury Department enforces US economic and trade sanctions. OFSI regularly engages with OFAC on financial sanctions but OFSI has no role in ensuring compliance with or enforcement with US sanctions.</p><p> </p>

The Access to Banking Standard is monitored and enforced by the independent Lending Standards Board.</p><p> </p><p>The independent financial services regulator - the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) - requires firms to treat their customers fairly, including the elderly and the vulnerable, and has broad and robust powers to enforce breaches of its rules.

star this property answer text <p>Automatic enrolment has been a success with 9.4 million workers enrolled into workplace pensions since 2012.</p><p>Figures from DWP show that the largest increase in participation has been among eligible low earners, with 63% of these workers in the private sector earning between £10,000 and £19,999 now saving into a workplace pension – an increase of 43 percentage points from 2012. Workplace pension participation among eligible men and women has equalised.</p><p>We want to build on the increase in participation. The minimum contributions required under automatic enrolment will increase from the current 2% of qualifying earnings to 5% in April 2018 and 8% in April 2019. This will help to boost pension savings. DWP’s 2017 review of automatic enrolment set out the Government’s ambitions for future reforms to expand the policy.</p><p>We recognise the importance of financial resilience and have therefore been working to provide low-income households with products that make it easier for them to build savings outside of a pension as well, such as Help to Save and the Lifetime ISA.</p>
