Phil's view of compliance comes from a different angle – from the understanding that you are running a business and need results; not just rules and obstacles.

Expert Insight

You’re running a business so you need results – not obstacles. This is what most compliance consultants forget, and also that best practice needs to be in all parties best interests. Most clients wonder how their compliance requirements can be less of burden to their business, while changing regulations seem to require more and more measures to be put into place. Instead, practices need to look through all the noise and focus on what the practice of the future will look like, and what measures will support this.

How can we help?

From experience in financial services with groups ranging from the boutique to large corporate, the compliance solutions Phil provides are supported by having "coal face" experience as an adviser through to having served as Responsible Manager on several Australian Financial Services licenses; a wide range of situations that can be adapted to provide solutions for your business. This is definitely not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach – your business is the focus to provide the foundation for your practice to provide the best possible experience for you, your staff and (most importantly) your clients.
