DEEP DIVE REVIEWS

Our ‘deep dive’ reviews offer a more detailed evaluation of the effectiveness of your compliance policies, procedures and systems and help you to address any issues that are identified.

For example, could the policies and procedures be implemented more efficiently, how are they communicated, adhered to and how do you manage breaches.

RETAINED SUPPORT OPTIONS

Examples of solutions we have to the day-to-day compliance needs and challenges that firms can face.

COMPLIANCE HEALTHCHECK

An independent assessment of whether your policies, procedures and documentation meet regulatory requirements. This gives you the peace of mind that you have the right compliance framework in place.

COMPLIANCE MONITORING

We can develop a compliance monitoring plan for you or review the effectiveness of your own plan. Once an approach is agreed, we can either execute the compliance monitoring plan on your behalf or subject your monitoring to independent review.

POLICY SUITE MANAGEMENT

As a regulated firm you must have adequate policies to comply with your regulatory obligations. At least once annually, we will review your policies and work with you to ensure these are up-to-date and fit for purpose.

FINANCIAL CRIME

You are required to periodically identify and assess the financial crime risks to which you are exposed as a result of the products and services you offer, the jurisdictions you operate in, customer types, transaction volumes and distribution channels. We can conduct such assessments or offer a robust independent review of assessments you have conducted.

DATA PROTECTION REVIEW

Independent assurance that you have appropriate policies, procedures and documentation in place to mitigate the risk of non-compliance with data protection obligations.

REGULATORY FILING

You are required to make periodic regulatory returns. We can either review your submissions prior to them being sent or prepare these on your behalf. Our services cover up to 22 different types of returns.

CAPITAL ADEQUACY

All firms have a duty to meet and maintain required capital requirements according to their regulatory permissions. Depending on your firm type this may involve an Internal Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) and/or an Internal Liquidity Adequacy Assessment Process (ILAAP). We can prepare or review these assessments and supporting documentation, ensuring that your firm is complying with its obligations.

SM&CR FRAMEWORK

We undertake a thorough, independent review of your Senior Managers & Certification Regime (SM&CR) policies, procedures, systems and documentation. We seek to identify compliance gaps, offer recommendations for improvement, and support and/or manage any remediation work that is required.

SM&CR SYSTEM

Our simple to use cloud based application has all the tools you need to manage the requirements of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime. Built by subject matter experts, Compliancy.SMCR stores information, evidences compliance, produces reports and documentation, automates reminders and helps readily identify and address gaps in your compliance.

ADVICE AND SUPPORT

On demand and proactive support from your Account Management Team, which is led by a specialist Consultant. They can answer your questions, provide advice or deal with specific issues for you. A set number of hours support per month and the option to purchase additional hours, if your requirements change.
