Case study: Past business review
Quickly scaling up to deliver largescale PBR
We found a flexible approach that utilised our client’s existing resource, keeping costs under control.
A large advisory network and portfolio manager was struggling to get to grips with the requirements of MiFID II and their obligations. With both its business lines affected by the new regulation, our client needed to understand how MiFID II overlapped with other regulatory changes like IDD, making it a particularly complex review. Our client was also struggling to prioritise workload and get the necessary change programmes off the ground quick enough to meet the implementation deadline.
Our team had just the right mix of in-depth regulatory knowledge and experience of managing regulatory change programmes. We developed a bespoke solution for our client, including:
Having identified the gaps and key actions needed, we put together an action plan that our client’s internal team could easily roll out. While keeping implementation in-house meant cost savings for our client, we made sure that standards didn’t suffer by providing assurance and oversight. We double checked that changes to processes and procedures were all appropriate and that the project stayed on track, as well as providing training sessions for key stakeholders. This meant our client was ‘MiFID II ready’ well before the deadline, safe in the knowledge that all procedures, systems and controls were up-to-date.
