Consumer Duty Panel and Networking Drinks (Deriskly x Goodwin)

12 October 2023

Deriskly and Goodwin hosted a special #fintech#regtech and #ConsumerDuty Panel and Networking Drinks in London last week. We had very high-quality and engaging discussions among industry stakeholders. As one panellist observed, the Consumer Duty has not introduced many new substantive rules for the financial services sector. The focus of the Duty on outcomes is getting firms to demonstrate they are doing the right thing for their retail customers. The FCA is tired of being blamed whenever firms fail to do so. Data and outcomes monitoring will be crucial and the Duty provides significant opportunities for new tech-enabled solutions to support compliance.
