Conduct Risk

The FCA has opted to purposely not provide any working definition of conduct risk, and there is no blueprint as to how to manage the emerging requirement The challenge for most organisations will be to demonstrate and evidence that governance expectations have been met without duplicating or (unnecessarily) re-engineering current processes and procedures.

Our thought leadership in the Conduct Risk and Technology arenas will help demystify and enable conduct risk management for you. At ACS, we believe that financial institutions should develop a strategy to incorporate elements such as:

    1. How can we ensure customers are treated by the organisation in respect of financial services and products that meet their needs?
    2. Does the organisation prioritise commercial interests over consumer issues? Are innovations in the consumer’s best interest?
    3. How do the organisation need to behave?
    4. How does the organisation manage its conflicts of interest?
    5. How does the organisation compete with its peers?
    6. How do remuneration schemes influence the behaviour of staff?
    7. How does the message from the top articulate a positive culture and motivate behaviour?
    8. How does the behaviour of the organisations staff impact on it’s product and price stability?
