Primary research from Asset Finance Connect
Asset Finance Connect research suggests that concerns over the increasing cost of compliance are at an all-time high, as the full impact of Consumer Duty on the auto and equipment finance industry become clear.
“When first proposed, the Consumer Duty was seen as a slightly fluffy, kumbaya effort that would replace the existing requirement to treat customers fairly. Not any more!” commented Helen Thomas, writer at the FT.
- AFC survey conducted among banks, independents and captives has provided primary research on attitudes to the cost/ benefits of on-going legislative changes.
- AFC’s legal partners Shoosmiths will comment on the likely areas of focus post-implementation of Consumer Duty.
- Professor Karen Elliott will talk about the opportunity costs and socio-economic impacts of regulation change. to deploy emerging technology to better balance the benefits and costs.
