Helping financial services firms meet regulatory requirements and maximize efficiency

Financial services firms need to constantly adapt to meet the challenges of an ever-changing business environment. But 55% of them say they lack the modern skills to innovate. Only 28% of employers believe their people are ready for the new challenges ahead.1

Assessments pinpoint strengths and weaknesses across the workforce. They enable employers to focus training where it’s really needed, to ensure their teams have the agility to adapt.

Banks worldwide paid over $14bn in penalties during 2020.2 As the industry embraces new working arrangements, it’s more important than ever that employers are confident their staff understand the rules of the game.

Assessing employees regularly can help embed a culture of compliance across the business.
