An effective, holistic approach to analysing and evaluating issues

Framework design and implementation plays a crucial role in managing conduct risks. It is essential to follow an effective, holistic approach when analysing and evaluating issues. You must take into consideration the customer journey, product design, systems and processes, sales, culture and governance and, on top of this, how these all affect customer outcomes.

It's challenging, of course, but becomes simple with the right support. 

Product review


The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) expects firms to have an effective conduct risk framework in place to deliver fair outcomes for customers.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to conduct risk but, thanks to our understanding of best practice and experience in improving standards of behaviour, our experts can provide tailored programmes to meet your firm’s needs.

Huntswood is a specialist in conduct risk and can assist your firm in identifying and addressing conduct risks in your current and future propositions. In collaboration with our technology partners, we can work with you to identify exactly what to monitor and how to develop the appropriate MI to demonstrate that conduct risk is being managed effectively.
