  • FCA: Guidance for firms on the fair treatment of vulnerable customers

    23/07/2019
    FCA has launched a consultation on proposed guidance for firms on the fair treatment of vulnerable customers. This sets out... FCA’s view of what the FCA Principles require of firms to ensure that vulnerable consumers are consistently treated fairly across financial services sectors. FCA states that whilst many firms have made significant progress in how they treat vulnerable consumers, it believes that there needs to be more consistency across financial services sectors. The guidance covers FCA’s definition of vulnerable consumers, the scale of the issue, and the potential impact on consumers of being vulnerable; what the guidance includes and how FCA expects firms to use it. FCA also sets out how it will hold firms to account if they breach the Principles and how it will monitor the effectiveness of the guidance. It also considers how the guidance fits with other requirements on firms including within the current regulatory framework, and wider legislation outside of FCA’s perimeter. The guidance will be consulted on in two stages – responses for this stage are required by 4 October 2019.
