Introducing The Panel – Oliver Wyman

On The Panel – Oliver Wyman

In April 2013 (and for four years), alongside the creation of the FCA, FSMA Section 166 (known as s166 review, skilled persons report or SPR) was amended to allow regulatory bodies to directly appoint a skilled person of their choosing to go in to a firm, giving the FCA end to end control of the process and leading to the possibility of a huge bill for the company depending on who is chosen.

business-team-anti-money-laundering-s166-skilled-persons-reportCompliance Consultant were appointed as Skilled Persons in 2012 and understand the process and often see the mistakes made by false beliefs of firms regarding the work involved. We specialise in working for you in project managing the process in as much or as little detail as you want. We can work on fixed fees if required.

At Compliance Consultant we offer the service of project managing the entire process for you from initial selection of a Skilled Person from the panel, using our experience (having white-labelled for many of the firms) and reputation of the firms from working in that arena. Some firms profess to be experienced in these areas with statements like “… have a number of FCA endorsed compliance experts” or “… our consultants work closely with the FCA” or even “… we have a panel of FCA qualified advisers“. These are typically recruitment agencies who dabble in compliance consultancy.
