The regulatory regime applied to companies is frequently changing, and strengthening, as the issues become increasingly political. The Bribery Act and Modern Slavery Act are recent examples of this. Companies can easily innocently fall foul of these regulations and suffer severe consequences, both financial and reputational. BGS work with companies to avoid these pitfalls.
BGS have an experienced team who understand the regulatory regime, as well as the requirements of good governance, who assist companies by evaluating and designing compliance programmes to mitigate regulatory risk.
“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and 5 minutes to ruin it! If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.”
We can assist in identifying vulnerabilities, draft policies and guidelines and train staff in integrity and compliance issues. BGS can also conduct discrete and comprehensive due diligence enquiries to identify risks related to business decisions.
Our training and compliance programmes include bespoke training on relevant subjects including the 2010 Bribery Act and the 2015 Modern Slavery Act.
BGS can provide expertise in:
- Anti-money laundering
- Anti-bribery and corruption
- Corporate risk and risk assesment
- Fraud protection
- Integrity and compliance audits
- Independently managed whistle blowing services
