We have significant experience of the regulatory regimes on the Isle of Man and other offshore jurisdictions. We understand the need to achieve a balance between running your business and paying sufficient attention to compliance and regulatory change to avoid breach situations.
We can assist by:-
- undertaking a gap analysis against current policies and procedures when regulation changes to identify any procedural amendments that are required;
- reviewing documented policies and procedures to help to ensure that these are up to date and in line with industry practice;
- drafting new procedures to assist the business in responding to new areas of regulation;
- undertaking compliance monitoring and reporting to the Board to help to ensure that procedures and controls are functioning effectively;
- providing regulatory training such as anti-money laundering, anti-bribery, compliance with the regulatory regime and directors’ duties; and
- facilitating risk assessments for anti-money laundering and anti-bribery purposes and advising on the risk-based approach.
