About Us

Looking at an industry need (and an existing gap) for a credible and independent external advisor on regulatory compliance matters, Compliance Matters was launched as an independent Consultancy/Advisory on regulatory compliance to banks and other regulated financial service firms. The objective behind Compliance Matters is simply to make life easier for banks and their compliance officers while navigating and complying with increasingly complex regulatory requirements and expectations. Hence we look to be able to provide a whole host of support services that could range from providing sound and insightful advice, cutting edge compliance tools and reg-tech solutions to support services that lend scale to in-house compliance in all areas of designing, assessing and reviewing governance and control frameworks. Currently we are collaborating with a technology partner to launch a holistic guidance cum workflow tool comprehensively covering the Compliance process/lifecycle. The idea is to develop a solutions platform that will work across different regulatory requirements that requires ensuring compliance framework, controls, risk management, assurance, reviews and reporting. We are trying to assist some banks facing ongoing regulatory criticism/scrutiny to reassess, review and overhaul their adherence processes in key regulatory areas. We are now open to supporting in house risk and compliance functions across banks.
