An overview of the Financial Services Act 1986
The Financial Services Act 1986 was a UK Act of Parliament designed to regulate various aspects of the financial services industry. One of the most notable implementations of the act was the introduction of a Securities and Investments Board (SIB), which was created to preside over several new “self-regulating organisations” (SROs).

The act has since been repealed and superseded by the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, under which the SIB and SROs were merged together to form the Financial Services Authority (FSA). With the advent of the FSA, self-regulation became less important and the emphasis has been switched towards more regulatory content.
