The Treatment of Vulnerable Clients
In recent years the treatment of vulnerable clients has become a growing priority both for business and regulators.
The UK Financial Conduct Authority Financial Lives Survey conducted in 2017 showed that 50% of UK adults display one or more characteristics of being potentially vulnerable based on their health, financial resilience and on life events that could have a detrimental impact on them.
At the session Claire will provide an update on the IOMFSA’s thinking on the treatment of vulnerable clients; this will be complemented by a Dementia Friends Information session led by Charlotte.
By the end of this session, attendees will:
- Understand more about dementia and ways in which to build a dementia friendly community
- Gain an insight into the regulatory expectations for the treatment of vulnerable clients
- Better understand:-
- What constitutes vulnerability and how to recognise clients in vulnerable circumstances
- The difference between transient and permanent vulnerability
- Best practice for practitioners
- Case studies
