Risk and compliance

Businesses today face ever-increasing risks that may impact their business strategy. These may be due to employee misconduct or error, malicious external factors such as cyber-attacks, regulatory intervention in areas such as financial crime and fast-evolving ESG requirements. We help our clients identify, manage and mitigate these risks.

Having effective and well-governed risk and compliance management arrangements in place is essential to operating a business successfully. Those arrangements include:

  • Board and executive oversight of risk and compliance
  • Risk and compliance framework, appetite and strategy
  • Risk and compliance taxonomy, controls and assessment process 
  • Three Lines of Defence (3LoD)
  • Obligation management arrangements across jurisdictions
  • Operational resilience (cyber risk, data privacy, outsourcing/supplier management) frameworks
  • Front office and first line supervisory frameworks
  • Horizon scanning for risks, and regulatory, reform, change and expectations etc. 
  • Training in operational resilience and control 
  • Financial Crime Compliance and Risk Management 

These are critical components for firms to deliver their business strategy and protect their customers and corporate interests.

We support clients in establishing and enhancing their approach to risk management at all levels of their organisation. Our integrated approach means we support both the legal and practical aspects of threat identification and mitigation.
