Moore Stephens launches Retained Client Service offering

We are proud to announce that we have launched our Retained Clients Service.

In a changing and challenging regulatory environment it is more important than ever for a regulated business to ensure every aspect of their compliance is covered, to be confident they are treading the right path with regulators. With the evolving regulatory landscape comes both new opportunities and risks, but businesses can only meet these if they are equipped with the right specialist knowledge. With recent regulatory changes including MiFID II, PRIIPs, the 2nd Payment Services Directive, the 4th Money Laundering Directive and GDPR, to name but a few, it is increasingly difficult for a firm to have all of the expert knowledge, across each aspect of regulation, in compliance staff who are being stretched further and further. We understand that firms need to respond to these ongoing challenges, have comfort that the business is compliant and have certainty of compliance costs. As a result, we are pleased to launch our Retained Client Services, to assist you with running a safe and sustainable business.

Our packaged retained service offerings
Depending on the size, nature and needs of your business, our retained service is comprised of three pre-determined service offerings, with support provided at varying frequencies. All our structured offerings include core services covering:

• an initial regulatory healthcheck or triage;
• a Compliance Monitoring Programme (CMP);
• flexible email and telephone support;
• training;
• thematic reviews (of your choice)
• ongoing regulatory horizon scanning.

Our service provides a 360 degree approach to a firm’s regulatory requirements and caters for different types of firms’ individual needs.

Our bespoke service offering
We can also adapt our service offerings to deliver a bespoke level of support and input. This can be flexed depending on whether or not you have internal compliance resource. You can tailor our input from supporting your compliance function, to acting as your outsourced compliance team.

How we can help
• We’ll work with you and determine the areas of focus and priority from a regulatory perspective.
• We will agree the level of support that is right for your business – and that could look different in year one to all subsequent years.
• We work with you to compile or update your CMP. We can implement this for you on an ongoing basis, or review and challenge its implementation.
• Our team provide feedback from our interactions on an ongoing basis. This could be a dashboard of completed or outstanding compliance activity, a report for the individual responsible for compliance, or an assurance report to the Board.
• We also provide assistance with and deliver regulatory training, across a number of areas  and include free training modules as part of all of our service offerings.
• This is all supported by forward looking horizon scanning to make you aware of upcoming regulatory change, so that you can build these into your future business plans.

Alongside all of the structured regulatory input, we provide you with a flexible hours account, which gives you an allocation of resource hours that can be used for any of your regulatory needs from ad hoc questions, to policy updating and assistance with Financial Promotions.
