The financial services sector comprises a broad range of organisations, from asset managers and alternative finance platforms, through to wholesale banking and zinc traders. All have their own challenges, nuances and, in some cases, “languages”. Our Financial Services team has the experience and capability to support you and your business in overcoming the complex issues you face on a daily basis.
One thing that unites the industry is the need to deal with complex risk, regulatory and compliance issues. Whether you have to adhere to just the UK rules and regulations or have overseas offices and have to deal with international regulators, our specialists have the expertise and experience to guide you through the complex landscape and provide you with integrated solutions.
Indeed, helping our clients deal with and adhere to the requirements of the PRA, FCA or international regulators is an important part of almost any piece of work we undertake in the sector.
As you might expect, many of the team members at RSM have a sole focus on the financial services sector, we also have a number of team members who have been in senior roles in the industry including at CEO, CFO, COO level as well as having some with previous experience working at the regulator.
In addition to the regulatory issues, changes and challenges, the financial service sector is in an almost constant state of change and evolution. Whether that’s products and services, client base and their needs, the systems and platforms being used, or as a result of mergers and acquisitions. We are able to support you as things change, be it with project assurance, cyber security advice on new systems, advice around system implementation or due diligence when you’re looking to make an acquisition.
Finally, like many firms in the sector, we work internationally. We have financial services focussed teams in all major financial centres, meaning we are able to provide a full service seamlessly across borders.
