Complaint Handling in a Regulated Environment

Make an enquiry


Complaints are frequently viewed as an inconvenience to firms and indeed they can be time-consuming and costly to resolve. However, at the very least, any firm who receives complaints should be interested in the root causes of those complaints in order to address these and improve the service provided by the firm.

One of the impacts of financial services regulation is that there has to be a formal approach to handling complaints by regulated firms. The Financial Conduct Authority’s complaints rules dovetail with its operational objectives to protect customers and financial markets and promote competition.
