Omacl: Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) Policy

Omacl places the interests of our clients at the heart of all of our activities. This company is fully committed to offering the best customer service and advice possible. Going forward, “customers” in this policy will refer to all third parties connected with a transaction.

Our clients are the most valuable asset to Omacl, and as such we believe in treating them with absolute fairness and high ethical standards. Our policy for Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) aligns with the guidance offered by the Financial Conduct Authority.

The FCA guidelines help to ensure that we can provide our customers with constantly fair outcomes and that we can take responsibility for our actions as a business, and the actions of our staff.

Omacl takes the demands of the FCA Treating Customers Fairly guidelines seriously, and specifically focus on the following key themes:

  • All customers should feel comfortable dealing with a firm that treats clients fairly.
  • All advice given should take into account the individual circumstances of the client.
  • All customers must receive clear information and be kept informed at all times.
  • All services sold and delivered are designed to meet the needs of our customers.
  • All services provided must adhere to an acceptable standard.
  • All customers must be able to make complaints when necessary.

Our Treating Customers Fairly policy outlines one of the core principles of our company culture, and we strive to improve and enhance our service on a consistent basis. Central to our ethos is a committed to consistently providing access to clear information.

Our Service

Omacl determines the suitability of all requested services for new customers before accepting a deal. We also continuously aim to understand the needs of our clients and aim to keep them informed in a clear and unambiguous manner about their options.

Our services are consistently delivered with transparency and clarity, with no hidden conditions or complex technical jargon. At Omacl, we also maintain accurate and comprehensive records of dealings with customers so that we can provide an insight into the interchanges with all parties in the event of a dispute.

Omacl ensures that our clients understand any risks associated with our service before a transaction and work hard to ensure that risk information remains clear and accessible. In the event that a conflict of interest takes place, our customers will be immediately informed as soon as we are aware of it.

We are keen to investigate the root reasons for complaints and appreciate feedback from clients who have experienced the complaints process with us.

Collecting regular feedback allows us to improve the service that we provide, as do our analytical practices.
