Treating Customers Fairly

Treating Customers Fairly

We are fully committed to treating customers fairly (TCF) and this policy has been designed to demonstrate the application of TCF during the course of our day to day activities. To this endeavor we have embedded the FCA’s six core consumer outcomes with our policy and processes.

These are:

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


We will act with integrity in everything that we do and aim to be in partnership with our customers
Our TCF Principles

• Customers will be provided with clear information and kept a properly informed before, during and after the point of sale
• We do not provide advice or recommendations of which finance product to choose we will ask customers questions to narrow down the selection of products that we will provide details on. Customers will they need to make their own choice about how to proceed
• Our level of service and product performance will meet the expectation of our customers as far as reasonably possible
• We will ensure that there is no barrier for customers to express their requests, concerns or complaints and will always be responsive with them
