      In 2006 we were the first specialist compliance consultancy to set-up in the Dubai International Financial Centre (“DIFC”). In 2017 we opened our Abu Dhabi Global Market (“ADGM”) office, and in 2019, we added our third UAE office ‘onshore’. We are uniquely positioned to provide the widest range of specialist compliance consultancy services on both a regional and international basis.

      Our consultants comprise individuals who have held senior positions in global and local financial services firms, for international and regional regulators and within international and regional exchanges.

      We do not provide a ‘one size fits all’ solution. We take the time to understand your business, along with your needs and objectives, to ensure that we provide you with effective solutions to managing regulatory risk.

      We believe the key to our success is to build long-term relationships with our clients and realise that this can only be achieved if we provide our clients with a combination of technical expertise and a high level of personal service.
