Where do we come in?
We’ll take the administrative burdens and demands off your plate.
We can assist with most SMCR related work, ranging from assisting with the SORs, providing audit trails for demonstrating reasonable steps, to providing full training on the Conduct rules
Our strong knowledge of the FCA handbook and FCA published papers and of the current regulatory environment will come in handy for your business.
Or, we could just provide a one-off ‘Healthcheck’ on all things SMCR in your firm.
SMCR regime modules
We have developed a system of modules to ensure SMCR compliance. Apart from the ‘Healthcheck’ all offer remediation and training if necessary.
This checks the state of SMCR, through a questionnaire and interviews. We’ll then do an analysis and you’ll receive a full report.
