Specialist Consultancy for UK Financial Services Regulatory Bespoke Risk and Compliance providing FTSE 100 companies with support regarding FSA (soon to be the FCA) regulation. Operating across the UK, Europe and the Middle East, we advise clients on Treating Customers Fairly (TCF), Governance, Risk and other requirements. As subject matter experts we provide professional services in all areas that are impacted by domestic and European regulation changes or legislation with ideas and recommendation on design and implementation.
Our work is collaborative, involving client personnel and resources and the transfer of skills to the client. Although 80% of our annual work is generally for existing clients, it consists of predominantly new project work. Our engagements are usually completed within one to six months. We work against specific objectives with clearly-established outcomes and timing, contributing to client business goals. Working mainly in the remedial space, much of our work is conducted under non disclosure agreements and we are happy to agree to such restrictions.
Our experience and results indicate that improved performance requires investment in people, systems and support structures. However, that investment does not require additional resources, but rather the redeployment of talents, resources and energy already present.
Our approaches revolve around a simple idea: Improving the client's condition.
One of the fundamentals of our success is to utilise the existing talents and resources of the organisation to enhance client satisfaction and their business goals, by directing talents and resources outward, not inward.
Fortunately, there are more positive alternatives to using a smaller niche consultancy compared to the Accentures, McKinseys or the big accountancy firms like Deloitte, E&Y etc. We not only consider that size doesn't matter, but large size can actually be a disadvantage in meeting your needs.
Dealing with a niche consultancy;
You are always dealing with the principal when you are dealing with CEI Compliance. This means that the company owner is the relationship manager and there is no junior partner to whom responsibility will be transferred. There is no decreased accountability, no "hand-off" to a less-informed colleague. If your interests are at stake continually, shouldn't you reasonably expect the owner's continual involvement?
We can usually provide resources on a "just in time" basis. That is, our projects do not have to cover excessive overhead, such as multiple offices, large administrative backup, recruiting, partner perks, etc. We are organised to efficiently provide everything that you, as the buyer needs, but nothing more than that which means that you are paying for value and results and only minimum overhead.
There is more likelihood of your privacy and confidentiality being observed with fewer people working on the project.
