Subject to any transitional relief, forms and templates applicable before 11pm Thursday 31 December 2020 should be read in conjunction with Supervisory Statement (SS) 2/19, which sets out how the PRA expects firms to interpret EU-based references in reporting and disclosure requirements and regulatory transactions forms.
The lists of banks and building societies that we regulate are updated monthly, the list of investment firms and credit unions is updated annually, and the list of insurers is updated quarterly. They are intended to be used as a guide only. We will reflect the status on future lists for those firms who have been affected by the UK withdrawal from the EU.
5 December 2019 To ensure consistency of how the information is displayed on this page, going forward the naming convention for various lists will be date stamped in the format “As at the day/month/year” it was published. Therefore the data for November will be titled 2 December 2019.
This list is based on the definition of 'bank' in the PRA Rulebook glossary Opens in a new window Opens in a new window.
Building societies we regulate
A building society is defined by the Building Societies Act 1986.
Ring-fenced bodies (RFBs)
From 1 January 2019, our general safety and soundness objective has been amended to reflect the aims of structural reform (also referred to as ring-fencing). The list – which will be published annually – sets out the UK banking groups included entities which were ring-fenced bodies (RFB) pursuant to section 142A of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) (as amended), and includes the individual RFBs within each group.

Investment firms we regulate
A PRA-designated investment is a firm that, broadly speaking, meets the following conditions:
- It has, or has applied for, permission to deal in investments as principal
- It has (or would have if it was authorised) a minimum capital of €730,000, or is broadly analogous to a European Economic Area (EEA) passporting firm or non-EEA firm
- It qualifies under our criteria for designated investment firms.
Firms that appear on this list do not hold permission to take deposits. Deposit takers with similar business models to the firms in this list appear in the list of banks we regulate.
Investment firms that do not appear on either of these lists are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
