Compliance and risk management solutions

for corporate clients

Overview

We offer corporate clients a comprehensive suite of risk management solutions so they can improve control of their compliance responsibilities and get better insights into the operational risks and growth opportunities within the business.

In today’s rapidly changing regulatory environment, many companies struggle to effectively manage their exposure to regulatory risks. Failure to comply with the growing and ever-changing regulatory requirements can have serious financial implications and do considerable reputational damage. We have a deep understanding of the regulatory environment with more than a decade of experience and insight into the world of financial advice.

Our risk management solution includes compliance, practice management and business intelligence services.

We offer a compliance monitoring service which makes it easier for big businesses to keep track of the compliance activities of their representatives. Our national footprint enables us to reach every location within our country and our sophisticated software allows us to combine the individual monitoring reports of each representative and provide consolidated feedback and analysis.

Practice management for corporates aims to assist branches (including consultants), franchises and representatives adopt best business practice. This drives better efficiencies and builds value.

We know that independent financial advisors (IFAs) are an important route to market for product providers. Through our business intelligence offering, product providers can stay up-to-date with the latest research on the IFA market such as demographics, product provider preferences, online and print media preferences and more.

Please contact us to find out how our risk management solution can make a positive impact in your business.
