Product oversight and governance solution
Product governance is a demanding topic that involves a lot of stakeholders and requirements. Despite its complexity, lots of organisations still organise their product oversight over several spreadsheets and platforms. This usually makes keeping track of changes a challenge in itself, and ensuring effective product governance an even bigger task.
This where Oversight360 comes in.

Fair value assessment
The FCA’s product governance rules and Consumer Duty require firms to assess the fair value of their products and services on an annual basis.
‘Fair value’ is the relationship between the total price paid by the end customer and the quality of products and services provided. Every party across the distribution chain have to demonstrate and evidence that their portion of the price is commensurate with the benefits and services to the customer.
We have integrated our proven methodology into Oversight360.
How is your product’s health and governance assessed?
Oversight360 offers a 360-degree view of your product’s health that is continuously re-assessed and monitored. The product workspace is made up of design, audit, domain, and driver information to focus on product strategy. Using the five domains listed below the product is given a health score and risk profile after assessment.
The tool’s ‘connections’ function enables the sharing and requesting of designs and audits, such as facilitating the sharing of latest target market statements and collaborative data collection for all aspects of the fair value assessments. This will be a game changer for manufacturers with multiple distributors and/or distributors who work with multiple insurers and MGAs.
