Toolkit: FCA COVID additional guidance

The 2nd tranche of the FCA’s COVID guidance for firms dropped in September 2020, asking broader questions around firm policies, processes and oversight, whilst challenging them to find and evidence appropriate forbearance solutions for customers.

We prepared a free self-assessment toolkit for firms to think about their measures and evidence it has on record across mortgages, consumer credit products and overdrafts.
