COMPLIANCE IN FINANCE IS NOT A SOLUTION YOU BUY OFF THE SHELF. IT HAS TO BE BUILT, STEP BY STEP.

Unfortunately there are no quick fixes when it comes to developing firm-wide financial compliance. Building a lasting and robust capability across a business—the demonstrable ability to anticipate and counter all forms of financial crime and malpractice—takes awareness and commitment at every level of an organisation, led by those at the very top. It also takes time, although once the basic step are implemented the pay-offs begin to flow as capability builds, step by step.

LIKE ANY JOURNEY, IT'S A SERIES OF STEPS

At OSACO Financial we have a clearly defined model for progressive steps towards full, firm-wide compliance, broken down into levels or degrees of demonstrable capability, starting with the fundamental structure of the organisation and building upwards from there, step by step, level upon level.

In practice the application of this model will vary from business to business. Our aim is to work with clients to develop and apply the most effective plan or map for the journey.

It’s also worth saying that we know the difference between a commitment to compliance and a commitment to working with OSACO Financial: the two are not the same thing. Unlike some of the larger global consulting firms, our business philosophy allows clients freedom and flexibility to choose their working partners without being tied to rigid, ‘off the shelf’ long-term programmes. We’re happy to accompany you for as much or as little of the journey as you choose.

LIKE ANY JOURNEY, YOU NEED TO KNOW WHERE YOU’RE STARTING FROM

The departure point on the journey to firm-wide compliance is a thorough and honest assessment of compliance capability.

The OSACO Financial Compliance Assessment provides full ‘as-is’ assessment of the current compliance capability of your organisation; your strengths, your weaknesses and the vulnerabilities that need addressing most urgently.

We can then work with you to form a plan of remedial action, mapping out the journey ahead and the work required to bring your organisation up to internationally recognised standards of financial crime prevention, Anti Money Laundering and Know Your Client capabilities.
