Edward joined Buzzacott in December 2018 and is an Assistant Manager in our Business Services team.
He works with FCA regulated firms including hedge fund managers, asset managers, investment advisory firms, broker dealer firms and private equity firms. These clients are subject to ever changing regulations, therefore Edward and the team provide an important link to help them understand the new regulations, successfully alleviating the regulatory reporting burden as well.
Edward and the team provide guidance on key regulations such as CRD IV, AIFMD and MiFID II. In addition, he helps clients with on-going capital adequacy and liquidity monitoring, compliance with client money rules and ICAAPs, while proactively advising clients on any upcoming regulations so they can plan ahead. Edward specialises in FCA regulations, particularly in preparing Annex IV, Form PF and CPO-PQR reports.
Edward is ACA and AAT qualified, having trained and qualified at a firm of chartered accountants in Gloucester. After qualifying, he worked as a senior in the Audit team at a firm in Cheltenham.
Away from his desk, Edward likes travelling, visiting new countries and experiencing different cultures, as well as cooking and learning languages. He also enjoys all sports, particularly football, rugby, cricket and tennis.
