About the event

The Assisted Decision-Making (Capacity) Act 2015 was enacted in December 2015. This legislation will impact on all financial professionals in dealing with vulnerable customers but particularly in dealing with people who need assistance in making decisions about banking arrangements or purchasing financial services and products.

The legislation provides for a range of decision-support arrangements that a person can enter into to assist them.  It will be necessary for all banking/financial staff to understand the statutory provisions to include understanding what authority may be given to a third party under these arrangements and in what circumstances.  The Act also sets out a number of Guiding Principles which must be complied with.
