We have the know-how you need
We set up Leaman Crellin Limited to provide a helping hand to individuals in regulated firms who don't have the bandwidth to get to everything.
Our shop is intended to help avoid hours of preparation and reading around, or, downloading a free generic document in the hope it has some relevance but doesn't say what you can do, or worse having to spend large sums hiring a third party to come onsite for weeks on end. Our clients have discovered the convenience of being able to immediately address a wide range of common issues through our digital downloads knowing the products are written by seasoned professionals with a focus on being practical, easy to follow, and implement.
Resources are finite
Whilst the financial services sector benefits from a deep pool of regulatory compliance personnel, resources and time are finite. Many firms are finding they need to be across a broad number of regulations and sometimes to a technical depth that requires time to learn and keep up to date. When a new requirement comes out or a new risk or issues is identified, often there aren't enough hours in the day to do the research, identify the salient points and put that in a way that is immediately relevant for their firm. This isn't a competency issue it's purely capacity. Our digital downloads are available to download 24/7 and give you the capacity you need whenever you need it.
Span of Regulations
Financial Services regulations span a diverse and broad range of products and services some of which are very technical. By their nature the regulations can also become technical. They can also be presented in a negative way: this is what you cannot do. We prefer to say up front what is just not possible and quickly focus on what is possible and how to achieve that.
Katharine has worked in financial services for thirty years in insurance, distribution, banking and regulation. During that time Katharine developed a passion for supporting firms with limited resources because they so often find they are expected to be across a broad range of regulations sometimes to a technical depth that takes time to understand and implement.
Katharine used to get frustrated working late and realising there is not enough time to read around on new topics to create a new policy, framework, training course from scratch. Cribbing something from a law firm or big 4 consultancy was too generic and not really that practical. The business needs to understand what they can do.
So Katharine setup Leaman Crellin Limited, to do the leg work and provide practical roll out ready documents in our online shop. The added benefit is that clients find they only need to use us onsite for much shorter value add assignments or train the trainer sessions.
