Our Treating Customers Fairly Commitment
"Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) is an initiative that seeks the fair treatment of customers throughout the sales
process. TCF is at the forefront of everything we do to ensure we put your demands, needs and requirements first."
TCF seeks to create a 'customer-centred' culture within individual businesses, and the industry as a whole.
It is governed and driven by our regulator the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
Specifically TCF aims to:
- Help customers fully understand the features, benefits, risks and costs of the financial products they buy.
- Ensure the sale of suitable products through appropriate advice which fully takes into account the individual's needs and circumstance.
- Ensure that advertisements are appropriate, easy to understand and deliver on what they promise.
- Ensure customers receive clear information and are kept suitably informed before, during and after the point of sale.
- Ensure that customers do not face unreasonable barriers if they want to make a complaint.
What does TCF mean for You?

- Products and services provided are designed to meet your needs.
- Clear information provided at all times.
- Products and services that deliver as we have led you to expect.
