The new Consumer Duty aims to bring about a fairer, more consumer-focused and level playing field, whereby firms prioritise the consumer’s needs above all else, ensuring good customer outcomes.

Firms need to consider the diverse needs of their customers, including those in vulnerable circumstances, and make allowances where necessary. The new regulations ensure consumers get products and services which are fit for purpose, provide fair value, that they understand how to use and are supported in doing so at every stage of the product/service lifecycle.

In essence, the regulator wants to see firms putting themselves in their customers’ shoes, asking themselves questions such as ‘would I be happy to be treated in the way my firm treats its customers?’, or ‘would I recommend my firm’s products and services to my friends and family?’.
