Neil is a partner in our risk assurance team specialising in the financial services sector. He leads the sector group in the North West of England and brings a wealth of knowledge with regards to sector developments, risks and emerging issues. Day to day he helps clients, many of whom are operating in high risk and quickly evolving environments, with governance, risk management, regulatory compliance and internal audit guidance.

Neil’s understanding and knowledge of the increasingly complex regulatory environment is extensive, and he is particularly knowledgeable in prudential risks, including; capital, liquidity and credit.

In specialising specifically in the financial services sector, he has built a client portfolio which includes banks, building societies, insurers (including friendly societies), and consumer finance organisations. As the activities of more organisations have become captured by the Financial Services & Marks Act, Neil has become involved in other areas such as RSM’s automotive sector group.

With almost 20 years of experience, Neil joined RSM in 2013 where he subsequently made Partner. He prioritises client excellence, is committed to providing a bespoke and flexible service and continues to offer a Partner led service to his clients. As well as acting as Head of Internal Audit for a number of financial services organisations, Neil excels in leading large regulatory compliance projects.
