What is RWA Solutions?
Growth and change can present numerous challenges to any business.
RWA Solutions offer the knowledge, skills, and experience that clients often do not have within their existing teams to help overcome these challenges.

Strong business planning and forethought is vital to ensuring that a truly defined customer centric culture is established and maintained.

RWA is delighted to announce that Steve Walton has joined the RWA Solutions team as Senior Governance, Risk and Compliance Consultant. 

The first two Aviva / RWA Masterclasses have been a great success and the fact that members of the FCA supervision team joined us as presenters just heightened the quality of the debate and information flowing from speaker to delegate and back.
The FCA speakers are joining us for two more sessions in Birmingham on the 21st March, and Bristol on the 23rd March, and Aviva has found us five more places at each.
If you would like to attend either the Birmingham or Bristol Masterclass events, please submit your details via the online form (link in article).
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will expect you and your firm to not only have formal processes, which are fully documented for all your business activities, but also to demonstrate how you measure and carry out effective governance.
This would include a full business plan covering not just plans for the firm in the short and medium term, its financial goals and associated matters, but how it will meet its regulatory and governance responsibilities and how these will be addressed.
The FCA wants to ensure that your firm is going to have a long-term future and be around for many years to continue serving your clients.
