Treating Customers Fairly

Course Overview

The FCA states that “all firms must be able to show consistently that fair treatment of customers is at the heart of their business model”. This sentiment is reflected in the FCA’s six TCF outcomes and the Rules and Principles that support them. Above all, TCF is about creating the right culture within a firm: “customers expect financial services and products that meet their needs from firms they trust” .

This Customer Service Elearning Course has been designed to help people understand what is meant by ‘Treating Customers Fairly’ through case studies and real-life examples. Learners will be assessed on their knowledge and understanding through a test at the end of the Customer Service Elearning Course.

This course is split into four parts:

Part 1 - Introduces the Financial Conduct Authority’s six core consumer TCF outcomes, and the Rules and Principles that reinforce them. It also explains what TCF does not include.

Part 2 - Explains how TCF should be implemented and assessed, and details responsibilities for all staff, including senior management. Examples are used to show good practices that constitute Treating Customers Fairly across a variety of financial firms.

Part 3 - Demonstrates what happens if customers are not treated fairly. Consequences may impact customers, firms, and society more broadly. A recent high-profile case is used as an example.

Part 4 - Contains a multiple-choice knowledge test based on the course content.
