FISCA should play the same role.

2. educating the public what they should receive from the insurance agents.
3.educating the public the right process the agents should use to appraoch their needs.
4.educating the public on their rights under the FAA and the recourse to legal redress

6.provide service to review consumers' existing policies and check for mis-selling and conflict of interest
7. help the consumers to lodge complaint with regulator and help take legal action against the insurance agents and the insurers for misconduct.

I believe that the CFED UK is funded by the state. FISCA does not get this funding from the state, so our resources are limited.

This role can be played by MoneySense and CASE, which receive state funding. I hope that they will take the challenge.
