This means that our:
- Promotional material is clear, compliant, jargon free and appropriately targeted.
- Staff have thorough training on all products they advise on or sell, understand who these products are or are not suitable for, and are encouraged to challenge product providers where they spot inconsistencies, ambiguities or potential unfairness in the product literature or product features.
- Staff Bonuses ensure fairness to the customer as well as customer satisfaction, rather than only rewarding sales volumes
- Non Sales Staff are encouraged to find ways to implement ‘Treating Customers Fairly’ guidelines in their day to day business activities
- Customer Records of instructions, profile/attitude to risk and of the advice and options given before, during and after a sale are fully up to date. This is to help ensure that we treat customers fairly and can deal with any complaints that may arise swiftly and fairly.
