Representing the customer's voice in financial services.
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, CMA and funeral plan industry to create better protection and clarity for consumers in this market.
- Insurance policy
- Nationwide Consumer Brexit Panel.
Working alongside a panel of experts to consider the impact of Brexit on consumers.
- Open Banking Project
- Competition & Markets Authority.
- Transparency Taskforce.
We are strategic supporters of the Transparency Taskforce, and James Daley is one of the organisation's ambassadors.
- Access to Cash Review.
We are a member of the independent Access to Cash panel, considering how we continue to protect access to cash for those who rely on it, as cash usage declines. The panel is chaired by former head of the Financial Ombudsman Service, Natalie Ceeney. Fairer Finance's managing director gave evidence to the Scottish Affairs Select Committee, feeding in the findings of the Access to Cash Review into the Committee's Access to Financial Services Inquiry in March 2019 (see image, right).
