    UK watchdog warns financial firms over Big Data

    Britain's banks and insurers must take the lead in spelling out how they will use data collected from customers or they could face new rules, Financial Conduct Authority Chair Charles Randell said on Wednesday.

The use of Big Data requires good communication so that consumers understand and accept a firm's approach to using their data and don't end up being "disenfranchised", Randell said.

This does not always provide value for money as people typically use their existing provider rather than shop around, the FCA said.
