Objectivus provides both retained and ad-hoc regulatory compliance consulting services. Our dedicated team offers cost-effective and practical support during the start-up phase, the launch and then throughout the life of the business. We have extensive experience in setting up firms, assisting with the initial authorisation and registration processes and then providing ongoing compliance support.

For more than a decade the financial services industry has been subject to new regulatory requirements and increased regulator oversight. New initiatives, such as AIFMD, MiFID II, SM&CR, GDPR and IFD/IFR, have continued to significantly burden firms in compliance, operations, finance  and at the board level. Regulated firms need to be aware of the continual changes of the regulatory landscape in order to retain a competitive advantage and avoid the substantial cost of non-compliance.
