Our client is a financial services firm that runs systems infrastructure and associated services for equity traders. They are based in London and regulated by the FCA.
The firm approached us in 2012 at the time of consultation for FCA policy statement 14/9.

Our client is a City financial firm regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and is required to undertake the Individual Capital Adequacy Assessment Process (ICAAP) in accordance with the requirements set out in the PRA Rulebook.
The firm needed to centrally manage and report on operational risks from multiple departments and allow any individual within the firm to log a perceived risk. A risk manager would authorise and quantify all risks in order to calculate an appropriate balance sheet provision for their board and ICAAP reporting.

Working in the compliance space presents us with all sorts of challenges when it comes to managing process and data. Whatever our ‘ideal’ workflow may be, or however our technology solutions are set up to handle compliance processes, regulation often forces us to make commitments that we are are not properly equipped to satisfy.
Most financial services firms will be executing documents on a weekly if not a daily or hourly basis: two or more parties agreeing to be bound by a set of terms.
