TFC, being a packager and not a manufacturer of products see that our role is to ensure broker firms have access to the TFC lenders Products & Services Outcome and Price & Value Outcome.
When it comes to Consumer Duty, we work with a selected lender panel. We want to work with our lenders and intermediary partners, to deliver fair outcomes and costs. We will engage with our lender partners to clarify how they are engaging in this process to deliver products.
Consumer Duty and its implementation plan has been embedded into our business plan, company culture, directors, and staff. We are committed to delivering the best outcomes possible after considering the client’s full circumstances, needs and concerns. We endeavour to ensure that you have a full understanding of the product, its terms and conditions and any possible consequences that may occur.
Intermediaries are responsible for ensuring their own fees and charges also represent fair value to their clients. We will provide you with the information you need to understand and communicate how our services, the lender products and associated fees provide fair value to our target market.
As a business we conduct a regular review on our lender panel, on fees, funding, service, and product offering to ensure it is in line with our target market and the fees are in line with market expectations and competition. We also review our fees regularly to ensure we are competitive, fair and that they reflect a reasonable cost for our services. This is an ongoing task.
We are focussed on the needs, characteristics and objectives of customers – including those with characteristics of vulnerability – and how they behave, at every stage of the customer journey. As well as acting to deliver good customer outcomes, we will endeavour to understand and evidence whether those outcomes are being met to support the intermediary and lender.
