Proportionate compliance solutions tailored to your precise requirements

Compliance services to support your organisation in meeting its regulatory obligations.

Regulatory Compliance Consulting Solutions

Regulatory compliance is increasingly complex. Firms must comply with applicable regulations to maintain their regulatory approval, their reputation and to mitigate the risks and costs of non-compliance for both the firms and individuals involved.

Firms are facing more intensive supervision and scrutiny from regulators, with a more stringent focus on personal accountability, culture and conduct. This requires much more than just complying with the letter of the regulations. The challenge of achieving regulatory compliance is exacerbated by:

  • The complex landscape of evolving regulatory expectations and obligations, and continuing uncertainty following on from Brexit and the pandemic
  • Budget and resource constraints and the need to access technical and operational expertise and resources more efficiently

Xcina takes an individual approach to regulatory compliance consulting by understanding the clients’ context, needs, risks and budget in order to design a proportionate compliance solution best suited to their precise requirements.
