Aveni’s 2022 Consumer Duty Resources

Written on
byChisimdi Nzotta

As the year comes to an end, it’s a good time to reflect on the events of the past 12 months, both the good and the not-so-good. For both the Financial Services industry and Aveni, it’s been a year of growth and resilience, with Consumer Duty as a key focus of our journey. We’ve been working hard to help more companies maximise the opportunities that Consumer Duty presents. Our platform Aveni Detect has rapidly evolved to provide regulatory and risk efficacy to organisations looking to place data-driven technologies at the heart of their operating models. We commissioned a Consumer Duty Chief Risk Officer survey, held webinars, and created a raft of other resources to support Consumer Duty understanding and insight.


Here is a curated list of some of our must-read Consumer Duty resources from 2022:




We commissioned a survey of 80+ CROs and Senior Risk and Compliance Executives across the UK Financial Services sector. They shared their top priorities and investment plans for meeting Consumer Duty requirements and challenges in meeting the tightening data-driven expectations of the FCA. Interestingly, only 35% of the Chief Risk Officers are very clear on the impact of the new Consumer Duty regulations on their organisation. However, the majority of CROs show a preference for technology (78%) and staff training (89%) to meet the regulations rather than hiring more people (41%).

We launched a ‘Consumer Duty Solutions Series’ to help firms understand the practical implications of the regulations, the regulator’s expectations, and specific actions and strategies firms need to take to comply. We’re privileged to have been joined by some of the leading voices within the financial services industry, ex-FCA executives and Consumer Duty experts as hosts and panellists.

However, we also held other webinars beyond this series. Dr. Lexi Birch, Head of Aveni Labs,  consistently ranked as one of the top 100 NLP engineers in the world, hosted a webinar and shared her unique insights into what Artificial Intelligence (AI) is and the importance of board-level understanding of it in Financial Services as firms increasingly investing in Ai-driven tech.

Aveni has created a range of reports and whitepapers this year covering everything from setting out the approach to adopt machine learning and other data-driven technologies in human-centred advice to the critical role of technology to meet increasingly data-driven Consumer Duty demands of the regulator.
