We are proud to announce that we are supporting the Personal Finance Society’s Financial Vulnerability Taskforce. We can all find ourselves in vulnerable circumstances at some point in our lives. By committing to the Financial Vulnerability Taskforce Charter, you can rest assured that whatever situation you find yourself in, our financial advisors will support you in a responsible and sympathetic manner.
The Personal Finance Society (PFS) aims to benefit the Personal Finance Sector and consumers alike through the promotion of ethical behaviour and the highest standards of professionalism with regards to technical knowledge and client service.
The Financial Vulnerability Taskforce is a newly-created independent body seeking to promote understanding of vulnerability, encourage appropriate behaviours and establish good practice within the Personal Finance Sector.
The Financial Conduct Authority recognises that people in vulnerable circumstances are susceptible to financial harm, particularly when a firm is not acting with the appropriate levels of care. Vulnerable circumstances may include physical and mental health, life events, abuse and coercion and financial resilience and capability. Ultimately, they want all those working in the sector to be seen as ‘a safe pair of hands’.
