THE FINANCIAL Services Authority yesterday proposed that risk warnings be added to all Individual Savings Accounts which carry the Government's endorsement in a bid to stop customers "misbuying" savings policies. In a consultation paper published yesterday, the FSA said ISAs which meet the Treasury's "CAT standards" for charges and terms should carry a warning that they may not be suitable for any customer. The proposal addresses concerns that customers could "misbuy" the savings when they are introduced next April if they carry Government endorsement.
