Placing you at the heart of what we do

We strive to put the fair treatment of customers at the heart of everything we do. This means applying the Financial Conduct Authority’s Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) principles in all areas of our day-to-day business activities to ensure the following outcomes:

  • Consumers can be confident they are dealing with firms where the fair treatment of customers is central to the corporate culture.
  • Products and services marketed and sold in the retail market are designed to meet the needs of identified consumer groups and are targeted accordingly.
  • Consumers are provided with clear information and are kept appropriately informed before, during and after the point of sale.
  • Where consumers receive advice, the advice is suitable and takes account of their circumstances.
  • Consumers are provided with products that perform as firms have led them to expect, and the associated service is of an acceptable standard and as they have been led to expect.
  • Consumers do not face unreasonable post-sale barriers imposed by firms to change product, switch provider, submit a claim or make a complaint.

Above all, customers expect financial services and products that meet their needs from firms they trust.
