Fairer Finance's Consumer Advisory Board was established in 2015 to ensure that the company never puts its own commercial interests ahead of its mission to create a fairer financial services market for consumers.

The Board meets a number of times a year to scrutinise Fairer Finance's commercial contracts, and to interrogate its ratings and commentary. It publishes an annual report, which is available on the Fairer Finance website.
