Since the financial crisis life for senior management has changed. The regulator now demands evidence of your board’s competence. With a greater focus on personal responsibility, it’s easier than ever before to hold individuals to account.

With more onerous demands on your senior team, personal repercussions and a constantly changing regulatory landscape, it is no surprise many firms feel vulnerable to compliance failures.

Improve competence at the highest level

With an independent assessment on the performance of your senior team, we help you see your blind spots so you close compliance cracks before they become gaping holes. Furthermore, we can assist you with viewing your policies, processes and behaviours through the eyes of the regulator. This may include:

• Preparation for initial authorisation interview
• Preparation for a PRA/FCA themed visit
• Preparation for a PRA/FCA BMSA visit
• Board and committee evaluations
• Personal coaching for success
• Governance reviews at board level
