How you behave towards your vulnerable customers during the pandemic will be remembered.
We explore how you can provide support efficiently and effectively, whilst safeguarding customer goodwill.
With many people experiencing reduced incomes and even losing their livelihoods as a result of Covid-19, the impact of the pandemic has been as severe on people’s financial wellbeing as it has on our physical and mental health.

We explore five ways you can support customers’ financial wellbeing and experience, from identifying those who are vulnerable, to using your data intelligently and ensuring you remain compliant throughout.
