Why Compliance Consultant?
At Compliance Consultant, we react fast, whatever your issues. We often work under NDAs so we can offer full confidentiality, something that larger firms often struggle to maintain. (Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements)
Compliance Consultant is your local compliance expert in Edinburgh. Whatever issue you face, we are fast to react. We are used to working under NDAs in order to provide you with confidentiality, which many larger firms are unable to provide.
When you work with a Big Four consultancy, the consultants often have a wide range of experience levels – and they charge extra for a Partner, Associates and Project Managers. Even when they are idle, they must be paid more, affecting how much you pay.
Here, we only used qualified consultants with a lot of experience, and they are priced into the project only when they are actually used. This improves efficiencies, provides more flexibility and leads to simpler pricing.
FOR AUTHORISATIONS, REGISTRATIONS OR VARIATIONS OF PERMISSION, IF YOU HAVE A DETAILED AND ROBUST REGULATORY BUSINESS PLAN, AND HAVE FULL DETAILS OF YOUR BUSINESS, STAKEHOLDERS, RISKS AND CUSTOMER JOURNEY, COSTS START FROM £4,000+. THIS CONSISTS OF A STAGED PAYMENT PLAN, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO FIND ALL THE MONEY IMMEDIATELY. WE HAVE BUILT IN GUARANTEES TOO.
At Compliance Consultant, we provide a range of services to our clients in Edinburgh, assisting with various issues that you could be facing. These include AML, governance reviews, SMCE, file checks, TCF principles, governance management, FCA Conduct Risk expectations and past business reviews, FCA financial promotions and more.
Fixed-price FCA and PRA Authorisations
We don’t provide off-the-shelf services like regulatory compliance consultancies. Instead, all of our services are bespoke. FCA authorisation, licensing or registration is often a very involved process. So we will get to know your business and exactly how it works, including risk areas that can have an impact on it. We always listen carefully to you before offering our strategic, fact-based recommendations.
Compliance Benchmark Audit & Projects
Financial services companies need robust governance. We can assess all your compliance systems and controls before comparing and evaluating them against the latest regulations and best practice. We will check your outsourcing policies, governance, AML/KYC and more.
Face-to-face training is essential for financial services companies, and this is something we can assist you with. We offer training courses that cover a huge range of subjects including SMCR, CofI and AML. We also amend our courses to ensure they are specific to your own needs.
