||<p>Investors affected by the failure of London Capital & Finance (LCF) are unlikely
to have access to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) in this case.
However, it is for the FSCS to determine this as it is an independent body from both
HM Treasury and the Financial Conduct Authority.</p><p> </p><p>The FSCS’ current assessment
is that LCF’s activities are not FSCS-protected, which means LCF’s investors will
not be eligible to claim for compensation from the FSCS.</p><p> </p><p>However, the
FSCS is working closely with the administrators to understand more about LCF’s activities.
If there are circumstances that give rise to potentially valid claims, the FSCS will
begin to accept claims against LCF and communicate this on their website.</p>
