The APPG on Investment Fraud and Fairer Financial Services no longer exists as of the dissolving of Parliament on Thursday 30 May 2024 ahead of the General Election that has been called for 4 July. The APPG intends to be re-formed once Parliament resumes, and that an Inaugural Meeting, election of Officers and APPG Registration will be required for the APPG to be re-formed

Our Purpose Statement

“To advocate for the victims of financial misconduct, crimes, scandals, frauds and regulatory failures, by driving positive, progressive, and purposeful reforms that achieve a fair, trusted and just system, where the service providers, regulators and government agencies provide appropriate protection and deliver good outcomes, including redress for historical wrongs.”

What is an All Party Parliamentary Group?

An All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) is an interest group that occupies a strategic and effective position within Parliament. It is cross-party, with a minimum number of parliamentarians from the Government and the official opposition, and cross-house, made up of both peers and MPs.

The APPG on Investment Fraud and Fairer Financial Services is a platform for constructive dialogue through which all stakeholders can exchange insights, experience and ideas with a view to helping to solve shortcomings in the financial services space.

All stakeholders are invited to provide meaningful input and help, including:

• Victims of banking-related-scams
• Policymakers
• Parliamentarians
• Market participants within the banking sector
• Financial regulators
• Media professionals with a focus on banking and personal finance sector
• Legal professionals
• Support groups
• Think Tanks
• Research organisations
• Banking and personal finance Trades Bodies and Professional Associations
• Charities that can offer support; and so on

As a cross-party group, the APPG is an effective vehicle to effect meaningful change via the Parliamentary system. The Group’s status is that of an APPG and as such is bound by the rules set out by The Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. It does not have charitable status, or official status in the House, nor is it funded by Parliament. It relies wholly on the participation and contribution of parliamentarians, industry members and stakeholders committed to creating a strong platform for meaningful change.

The APPG is co-ordinated and administered via the APPG on Investment Fraud and Fairer Financial Services Secretariat, the Transparency Task Force.
