To educate and align industry practices relating to the treatment of vulnerable customers
There is a regulatory and moral imperative to ensure that people are treated appropriately when they deal with financial firms, taking into account whatever vulnerability they may have.
Almost everyone will either have been in a position of vulnerability in their lives, or is currently vulnerable, or will become so as they age or need to care for someone. Financial firms have been working to deliver a consistent standard of fair treatment of customers for many years, but only recently have the needs of vulnerable people become central to fair treatment considerations. Some firms are well advanced with their practices, whilst others are struggling to establish consistent processes and strategy, and need support to help them advance more quickly.
Goal/s: a) To manage the RADAR tool (to ensure it is fit for purpose against finalised FCA guidance); and b) To define, develop and share best practice.
Strategy: Facilitate input from charities/trade bodies/regulator/3rd party suppliers and create a framework for dealing with customers in different vulnerable situations and categories.
