Launching a new product is perhaps one of the most exciting and stressful times for a business. Launching a financial product can feel like climbing an unsurmountable mountain. Get it right and you have a product that clients will love and trust for years to come, get it wrong and you can find yourself in some very hot regulatory water.
In today’s markets, there is a huge onus on treating customers fairly. The FCA Regulations use it as a tagline and the EU and International regulators place extreme emphasis on it. When creating a financial product, you need to make sure it ticks an extensive list of financial regulation boxes, because if it falls just a little bit short it spells disaster. Just look at the sheer volume of PPI claims that financial institutions have had to settle.
Further afield the EU has imposed tough sanctions and fines on companies that are selling products that don’t comply with legislation and in the US the government has cracked down severely on companies since the economic crash.
