The History of Richdale Consultants
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) was established in April 2013 in order to regulate wholesale and retail financial services firms. Since then, the manner in which financial services are provided has evolved and been adapted to the benefit of the consumer.
On the flip side, the regulatory requirements that have enhanced the integrity of firms in the financial service sector, have resulted in a growing number of firms being subject to enforcement actions simply due to their failure to appreciate and understand the strong link between compliance and providing the financial services.
The Richdale Philosophy
At the heart of our business is a commitment to ensuring all financial service providers, at every stage of their career, are suitably equipped to offer their clients the highest levels of service.
Instead of simply sitting back and advising, we’re prepared to “get our hands dirty” and undertake all of the regulatory compliance and design operational processes and structures that future-proof your firm’s compliance. We also pride ourselves on the added-value services we can offer our Directly Authorised and Appointed Representative clients, with training, development and other services available via our cutting-edge platform.
Honesty is always the best policy when it comes to external regulation support too. While some networks will offer a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’ as they aren’t prepared to take on the risk, at Richdale we are 100% transparent and explain the reasoning behind our ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers; revealing why certain regulations are a grey area for our team to handle.
