Product Lifecycle Management Product Growth Consumer Duty Compliance

What is consumer duty and how does Skyjed help?

In my experience, all companies should have their customers at the heart of what they do – they are the lifeblood of any business and who we are all here to serve. "Consumer duty" refers to the obligation of financial services firms to act in the best interests of their customers. It encompasses the responsibility to prioritise consumer welfare, provide suitable products and services, ensure transparency, and uphold fair treatment principles. In essence, it requires that firms consider the impact of their decisions and actions on consumers' financial well-being.
