Business Profile

Why Compliance Consultant Is A Different London Based Compliance Consultancy Why Compliance Consultant Is Your Solution
Per diem charging on interventions is a time honoured method of consultancy charging, and having seen companies held to ransom in this way made me consider other options.

But I wanted to shake things up and apply new ways of adding value, creating an excellent service and bringing transparency to an industry shrouded in myth and heresay. As a Compliance Consultancy, London, I had to do something different because Google Searches render thousands of results, and most of them are clones of the big 5.

Is this method really appropriate in the 21st Century?
Having a “Rate Card” or "Menu" of work seemed to me to be assuming that I new everything, the client new nothing and therefore I was superior and would “pigeon-hole” his needs to fit my rate card. That was not going to set me apart from anyone else or indeed endear me to anyone.

I set up CEI Compliance Limited (Later to morph into Compliance Consultant) to specifically leverage the associate model. The “Big 4” had many of their Senior Managers swimming around, even when there was no work for them to do. The end clients paid for this in the exorbitant prices charged for their work (and subsequent work invention exercises or affectionately known as land-grabs). I was firmly of the opinion that the client should only pay for the consultant working on THEIR work and not just because they were needed sometime on the project.

I therefore concluded that the client’s knew what problems they had, whether it was a S166 Skilled Person’s Report, a Risk Mitigation Program, Past Business Review, Additional Compliance Checking,a Compliance Audit or whatever they needed, and that may actually be tied in with other bespoke work. So it seemed to me that if I were to offer a fixed price for the work for defined and measurable outcomes, the time taken would be immaterial, as long as the outcomes were achieved, the client would not have an “Open Chequebook” situation. Now, as a small company I could not survive on any 90 day terms, so I worked on a minimum of 50% up-front and the remainder in a reasonable time.

The regulator obviously appreciated the work we had done and although we locked horns a couple of times, we maintained our integrity and kept to our value. They appointed me as a “Skilled Person” to conduct S166 Reports in 2012. This coupled with our flexibility and standard procedure of getting the right people with the right skill-sets for each project or intervention stood us in good stead and the model worked pretty well, with some major longer term work coming to fruition since 2011.

Now none of this was set in stone, so I always allow for a level of flexibility and to date that has served me well, whether setting up a new bank (2 to date), writing the governance for merging firms, authorisations, training, interpreting rules for software development and testing, writing specific manuals and policies (we sell many on our websites) but have created specific documents for payment services providers, crowdfunding platforms and others, as well as a plethora of other work in the regulated space.
