Remain aligned with the regulatory agenda

 

With many moving parts within a business’s operation, it’s understandable that from time-to-time, some elements may need recalibration to ensure they remain compliant and continue to deliver good outcomes for customers.

Regulatory healthchecks can help regulated firms refine their compliance work for the most effective results. Additionally, they can benefit firms looking to become authorised or vary their permissions (VOPs), as they provide the necessary insight to illustrate any discrepancies between a firm’s proposed approach and the regulator’s expectations.

Enlisting a regulatory expert to periodically assess your firm will enable you to remain focused on business priorities as well as what’s on regulators’ agendas.

Huntswood supports clients by:

  • Analysing their current business model and strategy across products, processes and distribution channels – including deep-dive investigative work within the operation, mock regulatory interviews to assess the articulation of their approach, and analysis of contributing factors such as pre and post-sales activity, internal culture and whether the firm’s governance arrangements assure good outcomes for customers
  • Full gap analysis, assessing your current or proposed approach against regulatory expectations and providing a comprehensive report to illustrate any issues
  • A clear articulation of the any risks to business leaders, ensuring they are aware of the level of risk the firm’s current approach is exposing it to
