Identifying mental capacity limitations during credit applications

vulnerability - a guide for lending FRONT COVER.png

Mental capacity limitations can result in customers having significant problems with understanding, remembering, and evaluating information about credit products they are applying for, as well as communicating a decision about this.

Where not identified, these can result in detriment including borrowing, lending and contracts that results in ‘later downstream’ financial difficulty and problem debt. 

Vulnerability: a guide for lending​, a new report written by Chris Fitch and Colin Trend and launched in June 2017, ​identified that by extending focus on to credit applications firms can reduce the potential risk of detriment and offer support.

This course – launching later this year – will cover practical steps and actions you can take to identify and support customers with mental capacity limitations (and other decision-making difficulties) during credit applications.​
