Compliance, Risk Management & Corporate Governance
Why This is Important to You
The regulatory environment for financial advisors and the advisory business has never been more tumultuous, onerous and risk laden as it is in the wake of 2008 - 2009 global economic meltdown.
Financial services companies from every corner of the industry are feeling the pain and waiting with wonderment and confusion to see in what direction the public and regulatory winds will blow.
One thing is for certain, the level of regulation will increase and so too will the risk of you having your career implode by simply missing one subtle nuance, insight or regulatory shift.
The wealth management industry, along with their banking counterparts are clearly caught in the middle of this maelstrom, as regulators vie to expand their turf and the boundaries between agencies blur.
The need for skilled insight and help with reading the tealeaves has never been more important to you or your organization.
Do you really feel safe shouldering this responsibility alone?
How We Work With You
We work closely with our wealth management clients to develop compliance strategies that respond to the changing shape of our industry. We work with you to put the necessary systems, technology and safeguards in place. This coupled with our hands-on mentoring enables you to confidently carry out your compliance and governance duties and obligations.
Specifically, the following are some of the ways we help firms like yours:
- Establishing a broker-dealer and / or an RIA
- Developing and tailoring written supervisory procedures and tools for executing against those procedures
- Conduct compliance due diligence on potential broker-dealer and RIA acquisitions
- Prepare for successful regulatory audits through mock exams
- Audit compliance framework, processes and procedures to identify gaps and opportunities (before the regulators find them)
- Review sales literature and advertising review and approval procedures and identify efficient methods for ensuring continuing compliance
- Review your operation controls
What This Means For You
- Peace of mind knowing that industry specialists have reviewed and revised policies and procedures to ensure you are in compliance
