How To Deliver the 6TCF Principles

The Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) principles emphasise that all FCA-bound firms need to hold customers dearly at the centre of their business models. Consumers prioritise value for money, and they often seek products from trusted brands. There are six consumer outcomes (principles) that firms are required to meet to ensure that they treat their customers fairly.

What is TCF?

TCF Principles

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) established the TCF principles to serve as a basic regulatory framework on how finance brands can relate well with their customers. The TCF outcomes are regulatory approaches that encourage financial institutions to nurture positive relationships with their clients as they are rooted in the fair treatment of customers.


These outcomes need to be adhered to during the entire product lifecycle from design to promotion, advice and servicing, complaints, and the product value chain. TCF codes form the fundamental components of the new Market Conduct Regulator’s mandate as far as the Twin Peaks model is concerned.


The Financial Conduct Authority sees TCF as a supervisory approach to ensuring fairness and integrity in the financial ecosystem. Here are the 6 TCF principles and how to deliver them.

The 6 TCF Principles/ Outcomes:


  1. Consumers can be confident they are dealing with compliant firms. This rule centres on company culture and governance, which means your firm needs some form of business compliance to be a trusted brand in the eyes of consumers.
  2. Products and services are built to satisfy the demands of identified consumer groups and are targeted towards them. So tailor your products and services to suit your individual clients.
  3. Consumers are provided with clear information. Effective customer-firm communication is the key here. So, always keep customers in the loop from A to Z on relevant information.
  4. Advice is suitable and takes account of their circumstances. When giving customers advice concerning automotive sales, factor in their unique cases and make sure the advice is appropriate.
  5. Consumers are provided with the associated service of acceptable standards. In summary, your performance and standards must meet consumer expectations.
  6. Consumers do not face unreasonable post-sale barriers imposed by firms. Make it easy for clients to switch providers, change products and submit claims or complaints.
