The Consumer Council for Northern Ireland response to the FCA’s consultation on Intergenerational Differences
The Consumer Council welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) consultation on Intergenerational Differences. We recognise that the FCA’s consultation centres on evolution of the way people build and use wealth and how these changes have an impact on consumers’ financial needs. However, The Consumer Council believes that consideration also needs to be given to the key differences that Northern Ireland consumers face in relation to financial services, as outlined below, which will have particular relevance to consumers’ ability to build and use wealth across generations.
