Treating Customers Fairly / Compliance

Are you struggling to implement a robust TCF compliance process?

An FCA authorised and regulated business, our expert team can help you meet your TCF compliance needs with greater confidence and increased customer insight.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)’s Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) programme requires regulated firms to demonstrably put their customers’ best interests at the core of their sales and marketing strategies – as well as their business models.

How well do you know your customers?

And how well do they understand your products?

Under TCF regulations, financial firms may not market or sell unsuitable products to customers. To ensure compliance, you need to:

  • Maintain a thorough and current understanding of your customers and their needs
  • Provide customers with clear information on your product features, benefits, risks and costs

How can you meet these requirements?

The value of a phone-based TCF Compliance programme

Our highly-skilled and professionally-trained research agents can quickly create a personal connection with the customer to build rapport and discover valuable insights – while adhering to strict codes of conduct.

This enables you to:

  • Assess your audience’s product knowledge
  • Segment your consumer groups accurately for targeted, suitable communications
  • Monitor whether customers are treated fairly: before, during and after the sale
  • Provide a clear channel for communication, comments and complaints
  • Gather feedback that helps identify areas for improvement
  • Record interactions, providing a full audit trail to support compliance
