Treating Customers Fairly Course

Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) applies to firms in the financial services industry. This is a significant part of the regulatory landscape that intends to promote fair treatment of customers.

TCF aligns with Principle 6 of the Principles of Business which states that firms must deliver fair outcomes to customers and pay due regard to their interests.

Our Treating Customers Fairly Course explains the FCA's rules for TCF and managing Conduct Risk.
