Abstract

This explorative qualitative study examines and identifies the components and structure of ‘institution based’ or ‘system’ trust in the context of the relationship between a UK consumer and their financial adviser against the background of the 2008 financial services crisis and other more recent scandals that have afflicted the financial services industry.

The findings of this study demonstrate the central of the statutory regulation surrounding the industry in building trust but challenge existing literature regarding membership of professional organisations, professional qualification and testimonials and presents new findings that links consumer needs for privacy, confidentiality and data security to premises design.

This paper offers information that can inform future academic research and considerations for managers in the financial services industry.
