IDENTIFY AND ADDRESS HISTORIC ISSUES AND IMPROVE CUSTOMER OUTCOMES
If the regulator has expressed concerns over your firm’s past business, or you suspect a product or process may have led to unintentional consumer harm, undertaking a review can reveal exactly where an issue lies, and allow you to make steps to remediate it.
Huntswood can support you by reviewing past business from a regulatory perspective, providing either positive assurance, or recommendations for further action. We have helped many clients to identify and quantify issues in terms of the level of detriment suffered and, subsequently, the extent of any remediation required. We’ve also supported firms in re-engineering their processes, policies and products, ensuring the issue will not occur again.
How do we do this so successfully?
We take a unique, four pillar approach to past business review and remediation:
Our regulatory and conduct risk experts will complete an independent assessment, providing clarity on the options available to your organisation. We are experienced in supporting effective and productive interactions with the regulator where this is needed.
The affected population of customers needs to be accurately identified in order to size the issue and enable you to understand the impact on your business. Full audit trails will provide evidence of all activity completed to identify those cohorts, including the rationale for any exclusions.
Our focus is on providing a cost-efficient, fully compliant and proportionate approach to past business review and remediation. We will recommend the right blend of human resources and technology, delivered on an outsourced or ringfenced model depending on your specific needs.
It’s vital that you have a clear view of any remediation activity required and remain confident that good customer outcomes are achieved. To this end, we provide fully tailored management information which allows you to see how the project is performing, as well as ensuring a robust approach to governance.
