gibbard wayne 400

Eminent panel of lenders led by Wayne Gibbard, Partner at Shoosmiths to consider the current outlook regarding discretionary commission dispute as the investigation continues.

  • FCA update expected in September 2024 but final decision likely to be delayed due to the Barclay’s Bank judicial review.
  • Differences between FOS and FCA that lies at heart of intervention gives comfort to industry hoping for a reasonable outcome. Partial disclosure may be enough to negate secrecy, with full disclosure if asked.
  • Lenders are responsible for any claim of unfair relationships and not intermediaries. Lenders in turn could ask for indemnities from intermediaries that sufficient disclosures have been made.

Discover the very latest twists and turns in the discretionary commission dispute which threatens unprecedented (genuine use in this case of an overused phrase!) compensation levels set to exceed PPI, but which now shows some signs of successful management.

  • Hear the views of our legal advisors and our panel of auto finance lenders who are working at the heart of this dispute.
