The Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR) affects all Financial Services and Markets Act (FSMA) authorised firms including those within Asset Management, Banking, Capital Markets, Consumer Credit, Fintech, Insurance, Mortgages and Wealth Management. Following the implementation of SM&CR in December 2019, firms had a number of further requirements to meet by 31 March 2021. 

Compliancy Services provides a range of support options to all firms and individuals subject to SM&CR, helping you ensure you continue to meet your regulatory obligations whilst minimising the impact on your time and resources.
