Regulatory Gap Analysis

The FCA expect firms to assess their regulatory risks and put measures in place to mitigate them. Firms who do not will be exposed and may be subject to FCA enforcement. CCAS can help you to carry out a full regulatory gap analysis to identify weaknesses and strengthen them, so you can continue to do business without intervention.

Compliant firms understand their business

Firms must be proactive in understanding the risks inherent in operating their business and benchmark themselves against FCA guidance and FOS decisions. This gap analysis should reveal where compliance procedures need to be improved and provide the information needed to put things right. This could be in training and performance, standard operating procedures, controls or simply inadequate policy documentation.

A thorough regulatory gap analysis demands knowledge and experience of several specialist areas including regulation, audit, risk management and best operating practices. CCAS is expert in these areas. We can help you identify where you are falling short and provide a clear action plan of what you need to do to safeguard your business from regulatory pressure.
