Financial Services Risk Management

Financial Services, Risk Management, AML and Regulatory Reporting Subject Matter Experts

Our subject matter experts (SMEs) have extensive experience in helping clients to fully understand and respond effectively to international compliance obligations in the fast-moving regulatory landscape.

We specialise in understanding precise client needs and the markets within which they operate. This allows us to design and operationalise bespoke Target Operating Models and frameworks.

Review and assessment

Engagements typically start with a senior-level current state assessment of the current position. A documented review is provided, including outcomes of stakeholder interviews and comparisons of clients’ internal financial crime framework, policies and controls to industry best practice. We are then able to identify critical gaps in comparison with regulatory requirements, and provide a list of recommendations for meeting these obligations.

Further scoping and activities can include:

Assessing and outlining specific regulatory demands

Stakeholder engagement including updates to senior executives and presentations to critical personnel

Acting as lead advisor for compliance procedures and high-risk escalations

Redesigning and embedding operating frameworks

Creating group-wide policies and standards, procedures and first-line operational toolkits

Leading and managing group-wide consultations on frameworks and delivering for board approval

Advising on digitisation and AI strategies

Executing operational change programmes
