Preparing for a Regulatory Risk Assessment


Assist the firm in preparing for a DFSA regulatory risk assessment visit to ensure you are well-prepared and know what to expect.


We will assist you as follows:


  • Help you to prepare and organise required documentation
  • Independently review and provide feedback on available documents
  • Conduct mock interviews and provide constructive feedback


After the visit, we can assist in formulating your response to the DFSA’s risk mitigation program and assist in the implementation of any regulatory findings/ observations. 


We can also assist firms that find themselves subject to fraud, involved in a regulatory investigation and/or are subject to enforcement action.
