Financial Services Qualification Scheme (FSQS)
In 2015 OWB was invited to join FSQS by one of the financial services buyers within the scheme. After careful consideration, OWB concluded to join the scheme and have since subscribed each subsequent year.
Confronted with the FSQS questionnaire, a lot of information is required and could have been daunting, however with the support of the Hellios sales and validation team, the process was surprisingly straight forward. It was not a quick process but once completed, we only now must check and amend the data in the questionnaire annually. This gives us a reminder to ensure our data is up to date for all the buying organisation within FSQS to see.
FSQS has provided OWB with independent audit of our working practices and a level of compliance and regulation that the marketing communications we design and deliver for our financial services clients is robust, positioned effectively and cognisant of regulations.
FSQS has also given us an opportunity for other financial institutions to see our profile with the potential of future business.
