Debt Management Firms Still Failing Consumers

Posted on 1 July 2015

According to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Debt Management Firms are still failing Britain's most vulnerable.

Comments of particular note are:

  • firms are failing to adequately assess customer's financial circumstances before recommending a course of action  
  • firms not making clear the type of service they provide and that free advice is available
  • vulnerable customers encouraged to purchase products ans services which were not suitable and impeded their ability to repay their debts 
  • Most telling is the statement "We found the quality of advice provided by some fee-charging debt management was unacceptably low"

Read the full article at the FCA's website.  

For appropriate advice, both directors and individuals should speak with properly qualified insolvency advisors.
