New Customer Duty for FCA Regulated Firms
In 2023, the FCA will be introducing its Consumer Duty and the first new Principle for Business since 2001. This attempt to refocus the regulator’s attention on consumer outcomes stems from Parliamentary pressure on the regulator to introduce some form of duty of care that firms will owe members the public.
In meeting public expectations, the regulator has created a multi-level structure on which it wants to hang its consumer duty of a Principle. Firms need to grapple with that structure, its scope, the cross-cutting rules and four central outcomes involved.
This course tackles these issues and seeks to help firms to identify what will be changing, where the regulator’s emphasis is moving and how to apply the new rules in practice.
The trainer will be calling on his experience of over 30 years of dealing with customer service, promotions, complaints and product governance: the core topics involved here.
