Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) – Practical measures needed to comply5 CPD
The Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA) requires that Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) principles be “embedded and central to an organisation’s culture”. This involves implementing and working towards outcomes defined within the TCF framework that aims to ensure that customers’ financial services needs are appropriately met through a sustainable industry.
While the specific outcomes listed under the TCF requirements seem self-explanatory, consideration needs to be given to understanding the practical application required to successfully meet these outcomes. In this course, we explore the practical measures that are required to comply with the TCF outcomes and criteria.
Once you have completed this course you will be able to:
- understand the need and purpose of TCF.
- explain the compliance measures that apply under TCF Outcome 1 on culture and governance.
- understand the compliance measures to meet product suitability requirements under TCF Outcome 2.
