Our policy work

Fairer Finance’s mission is to create a financial services market which is fair for consumers as well as the companies that serve them.

To achieve that goal, we regularly engage with regulators, government and industry bodies helping to influence and shape new pieces of legislation and regulation.

We respond to as many key consultations as we can, and regularly share our views at industry events, as well as through the media.

Some of the work we are currently engaged in includes:

  • Future of the funeral plan market
  • We are engaged with the Treasury, FCA and funeral plan market to create better protection and clarity for consumers in this market.
  • Insurance policy
  • Feeding into the FCA’s work on the implementation of the Insurance Distribution Directive and the publication of its insurance value measures.
  • Nationwide Consumer Brexit Panel. 
    Working alongside a panel of experts to consider the impact of Brexit on consumers.
  • Open Banking Project
  • Working to ensure consumers' interests are represented in this important project, which will allow customers' personal banking data to be used by third party software providers – facilitating more effective comparison and efficient money management.
  • Competition & Markets Authority.
  • Engaging with the CMA on its work around the comparison site market.
  • Royal London Consumer Advisory Group.
