What is the profile of your ideal client?
I help individuals understand the financial services regulatory landscape and share with clients’ a framework to enhance their ability to navigate risk. I teach clients about the nature of the risks and support them to develop the skills necessary to deal with those events.
My clients come from various financial services institutions including banks, regulators, CFD/ FX Providers, Asset Managers and consultancies.
What business services could you offer IIBN members?
A critical risk for firms is staff without regulatory knowledge taking responsibility for regulatory activity. Such failures can potentially lead to a regulator imposing statutory sanctions if a firm fails to meet its obligations. Moreover, failure by an individual to act with integrity could lead to dismissal or a ban from the industry.
If you are an authorised institution in the UK, Europe or Internationally, I can support you with the development and implementation of training programmes to cover your regulatory culture and conduct risk.
I am a financial services professional with over 20 years’ experience in regulatory and operational risk in the United Kingdom, Europe and internationally. I have held various roles across several organisations including the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Royal Bank of Scotland and UK Finance. I have designed and implemented training and communications to support regulatory programme delivery, including the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive and Client Money and Assets.
I work holistically, enabling people to achieve real results by understanding their motivations, skills and purpose. My approach comes in the form of one-to-one mentoring, face-to-face training, online programmes, and retreats.
What business services could you require from IIBN members occasionally/regularly?
I work with delivery partners where necessary, and I specialise on the conduct risk supervisory framework. I sometimes need the support of other professional trainers and consultants to be able to deliver wider training to clients to cover more specific/ technical areas. For example, prudential requirements, accountancy calculations, trade finance specifics or other general training.
I partner with other experts and consultancies to work with clients not only on the delivery of training but where there may be severe regulatory issues or breaches which need to be analysed. Especially if the problem is serious, I need the support of accountants and lawyers who have a specific understanding of regulatory law, the EU and the application of insolvency or financial crime laws in various jurisdictions.
