Stop wasting money on fines!

It has recently been reported that the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has imposed significantly more fines in the first half of 2019 than in previous years. FCA fines worth a total of £319.2m have been enforced in 2019, costing one firm more than £100m. These stiff penalties are set to continue as the FCA faces increased pressure to protect customers of the financial services industry.

But this trend could be turned. By having the right compliance experts in place, you will save money. Getting the right people in the right place doing the right job – this is not rocket science, so what is holding you back?
