If it wasn’t recorded, it wasn’t said. Why capturing every client conversation matters

2 min read

A number of recent, high profile cases , serves as a stark reminder of the importance of meticulous record-keeping for financial advisors. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is penalising advice firms for failing to conduct “ongoing advice reviews” as mandated by regulations. This highlights a critical issue: without clear documentation of client interactions, advisers can face significant financial and reputational risks.

The Perils of Poor Record-Keeping

These recent cases aren’t an isolated incidences. In today’s complex regulatory environment, financial advisers have a responsibility to ensure accurate and comprehensive records of all client conversations. Unfortunately, traditional methods of note-taking are often prone to errors and inconsistencies.

Imagine a situation where a client’s recollection of a conversation differs from the adviser’s notes. Without documented evidence, the adviser could be exposed to potential legal challenges or struggle to demonstrate compliance with ongoing advice reviews.
