The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) have regulations in place to protect customers and ensure they are always treated fairly. With this core principle in mind, we have created the ‘Electronic Choice Of Funding’ (eCOF) software. This assists our clients in meeting their regulatory obligation to provide customers with clear, fair, and not misleading information regarding the available funding options. This enables customers to make an informed decision on which, if any, credit products suit them best. This software is provided free of charge to all CCS clients.
In addition to this, our experts will be on hand to help you with any regulatory queries you may have and will be happy to offer recommendations on how to compliantly and ethically promote finance to your target audience. We will offer guidance on marketing material that makes customers aware of the availability of finance in a compliant manner.
