Last year, the FCA confirmed its plans to introduce a new Consumer Duty. This sets a higher and clearer standard of consumer protection across financial services and highlights the requirement to put consumers’ needs first.
The FCA states that firms should take reasonable steps to:
- Act in good faith towards retail consumers
- Avoid causing foreseeable harm to retail consumers
- Enable and support retail consumers to pursue their financial objectives
What does this mean for MotoNovo?
Our aim is to help customers make effective choices, act in their interests and be able to make informed decisions. As a manufacturer of financial services products, it’s our duty to review our products and services and provide distributors (dealer/broker partners) with a guide to ensure they understand our products and can best support the customer’s buying journey.
The guide includes four key elements:
- Fair value statement
- Target market
- Characteristics and benefits of each product
- Our product matrix
To comply with FCA guidelines, it's important that all of our distributors have a copy of our Product & Services guide. If you’re a MotoNovo distributor, you should have already received this but in case you missed it, head to the Dealer Hub to download it or contact your Account Manager.
