The FCA is to ban the promotion of mini-bonds to retail investors, unless those customers are sophisticated or high net worth.
The marketing ban comes in from 1 January 2020 and will be in place for 12 months while the FCA consults on making the ban permanent.
The ban follows the high-profile collapse of London Capital & Finance, which fell into administration earlier in the year, owing £236m to more than 11,000 customers.
