Without applying proper due diligence and ongoing monitoring your firm may face unnecessary regulatory risks. You may also fail to meet some of the tenets of the FCA’s Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) initiative.
But constructing and maintaining a robust investment process need not be time consuming or costly as an increasing number of firms have found by engaging us rather than continue to do this in-house.
We firmly believe that by working with us you will:
- Free up valuable time to build and enhance client relationships
- Be able to be proactive by alerting clients in advance of issues and opportunities
- Reduce regulatory risk in your business and meet your requirements under TCF
- Deliver added capital value.
