Vulnerable Customers Policy Template Overview

The FCA defines a Vulnerable Customer as “someone who, due to their personal circumstances, is especially susceptible to harm, particularly when a firm is not acting with appropriate levels of care.” This can include any person who is unable, for whatever reason, to make an informed decision at the time of dealing with them.

In February 2021, the FCA published additional guidance in their FG21/1 Guidance for Firms on the Fair Treatment of Vulnerable Customers. Firms’ awareness and compliance in this key area is still an FCA priority. Our Vulnerable Customers Policy template: –

  • Provides ready-to-use, but customisable content for identifying vulnerable customers and proceduers for treating them fairly
  • Includes comprehensive guidance on what makes an individual vulnerable and provides samples of common vulnerabilities
  • Gives you the tools to comply with your FCA responsibilities to customers obligations and evidence that you have a compliant vulnerable customers policy in place
  • Developed by a company who have been providing FCA compliant policies and procedures for nearly 10 years
  • Saves you time and money by providing a professional, compliant policy that you can integrate into your existing compliance program.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can The Documents be Customised?

All our templates and policies are fully customisable and we encourage you to edit the content to suit your industry and business type. Much of the content is ready to use, but an effective policy should accurately reflect what your business does. Therefore, you should customise the content to mirror your business processes and obligations.

What Format are the Documents in?

The templates are developed in Microsoft Office Word and are fully customisable and ready for corporate branding. They are compatible with most text editing software. Checklists and assessment templates are provided in an Excel format.

Are the Documents Suitable for my Business?

The content has been developed using the relevant standards, regulations and legislation. Therefore, our templates, manuals and toolkits are suitable for any industry and business type. We encourage you to customise the content to suit your sector and obligations and provide guidance where you are required to add your own content.

Are the Templates an 'Off the Shelf' Solution?

Every business is different and compliance documents need to reflect that. Whilst our templates and toolkits go a long way toward making you compliant, many of our documents do require some customisation to ensure that they are relevant and compliant. It is important that each document accurately demonstrates what your business does and how it does it.

The level of customisation required for each document will depend upon factors such as your size, scope and current compliance program. However, we are always on hand to answer any questions you may have and provide unlimited email support.

How Can I Access My Order?
