|About||Assent Legal is a legal services provider aimed at ensuring that our clients in the financial services industry become and remain compliant in accordance with the regulations governing our industry. Assent also offers bespoke legal services.|
|Mission||Assent Legal strives to provide our clients with a service that will help them to work within the framework of the regulatory environment. Our aim is to ensure that all our clients remain compliant within the framework of the regulations guiding our industry.|
Our regulatory environment necessitates that each business unit continuously re-evaluates how they and their colleagues do business, and in particular how they approach risk and the management thereof.
They have to conduct their business while adhering to certain policies and procedures, and a Code of Conduct. They have to understand the regulation to which they are accountable. Corporate governance, the King III Report, Basel (all incorporated in the New Companies Act), and Solvency Assessment and Management (SAM) are no longer a convergence of reform but rather an enhancement and fortification of such rules and principles in company direction, deeply entrenched in common as well as codified law.
The Consumer Protection Act and the FSB’s Treating Customers Fairly initiative impacts greatly on the performance of businesses, their subsidiaries and business partners. These are best practice standards, principles and guidelines of which all providers should take cognisance and should apply to their Compliance Framework as well as standard business practices.
At Assent Legal we are able to provide our clients with a service that will help them to work within the framework of the regulatory environment.
