“The rain, it raineth on the just and also on the unjust fella;
but chiefly on the just, because the unjust steals the just’s umbrella.”
Sam Ervin – US Senator 1954 – 1974
It would undoubtedly be easier to make money if we chose not to follow the increasing number of regulations to which we are subject. After all, it’s probably more profitable to rob a bank than to run one.
However, as we offer compliance advice (as opposed to non-compliance advice) we feel the real trick is knowing how to make the most of what can be acheived within the regulations.
It’s vital not to see the compliance function as a brake on enterprise; it must be a partner in the firm’s strategic development; if it’s not, then you need to review your compliance function urgently.
If you would like to discuss any aspects of strategic compliance advice, please call or e-mail us.
