FCA reporting and capital adequacy.

The financial services sector has seen wave after wave of new regulations over the last 20 years and this has changed how the industry operates beyond recognition.

From the ‘relatively’ straight forward capital adequacy reporting rules, the reporting requirements are now at an unprecedented level of complexity. Also, most reporting requirements are now quarterly as opposed to half-yearly or annual; which makes the whole reporting cycle a ‘continuous’ exercise.

The pace of change is beyond our control but our focus has been on developing a thorough understanding of all the intricate regulations that have affected businesses in all fields (asset management, corporate finance, advisory, brokerage services etc.) We aim to make the regulatory reporting obligation for our clients as simplified and seamless as possible and integrate some of the on-going monitoring requirements within the financial reporting services.
