The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is a financial regulatory body in the UK that operates independently of the UK government.
The FCA regulates financial firms, like Marsh. Focusing on the regulation of conduct by both retail and wholesale financial services firms, they ensure consumers receive the service they deserve, and the UK’s financial market remains honest.
APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate, this is the amount of interest a bank or lender charges on the money it lends. Your repayments are the same every month because of how the interest is calculated. At the start of the loan term, your repayments will include more interest but less of the loan balance. Towards the end of the loan term, your repayments will include less interest but more of the loan balance.
If you see ‘representative’ before the APR, this means that the credit or loan interest rates quoted through advertising (like on comparison websites) takes into account all charges associated with a product. Not just the interest rates. It can be easy to assume that the lender with the lowest representative APR you find advertised will give you the best rate. However, when you apply, it’s likely you’ll receive a personal APR based on your circumstances. This could be the same, higher, or lower than the representative APR that you originally saw advertised—so it’s good to check what yours would be.

Underwriting is the process of accessing the risk of lending to someone based on their credit history and personal circumstances, to ensure that the cost of the loan they’re applying for is proportionate to the risks presented by the person concerned. They then make a decision as to whether or not they will lend to the customer based on this information.

Interest rate is the cost of borrowing money typically shown as an annual percentage rate. So you’d pay back the original amount loaned (known as capital) plus the designated interest rate percentage agreed prior.
So if you borrowed £1000 with a 10% Interest rate, you would have to pay back £1100 (as 10% of £1000 is £100)
