Expert regulatory support to meet your evolving business goals
We are regularly told that one of the biggest concerns facing the senior management teams of Discretionary Firms is how to achieve cost-effective regulatory compliance. Faced with thousands of pages of rules books and the difficulty of benchmarking their firm against regulatory expectations and industry best practices, even with experienced personnel, many senior managers find the demands of regulatory compliance to be worrying and burdensome.
Personalised, regulatory support sits at the heart of the Signature proposition. Signature employs dedicated discretionary asset management and wealth management experts with extensive experience and demonstrable track records of achieving sensitive, sensible, regulatory compliance oversight and advice in award-winning firms.
Our senior team has all held first line C-suite and 'Head of' roles and intimately understand the cost and commercial considerations of effective regulatory compliance. We are intensely practical about creating solutions, not just identifying issues. Our clients also benefit from award-winning regulatory help desks and specialist support delivered by a team of more than 60 experienced staff members, including many industry-leading experts in their specialist areas.
We work with Discretionary Firms to grow and adapt their business model through integrated, scalable and expert commercial and regulatory support services designed to meet evolving business goals. Whether you wish to bolster your existing compliance team, outsource specific compliance work or utilise a 'check the checker' service, Signature can help.
Signature is dedicated to supporting Discretionary Firms, but where you need to integrate your approach with your wealth management or distribution business arms, we are part of the Fintel group and integrate seamlessly with our SimplyBiz advisors orientated compliance services.
Our clients receive tailored independent reviews, offering everything from full compliance audits to periodic file reviews, which relieve crucial internal pressure and provide vital market context to the changing regulatory landscape.
