SMCR Software Solution

The FCA’s Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) represents a paradigm shift in regulatory compliance for the financial services sector in the UK.

Compliance with SMCR requires dozens of checks across every senior manager and certified person in your organisation. It's a daunting and laborious task that drains management time.

SMCR 360® is a suite of compliance tools that help you centralise, integrate and automate your SMCR processes to improve accuracy, reduce risk and save you time.

Streamline SMCR compliance

Our technology-based SMCR compliance solution helps firms to implement effective compliance and risk measures and deliver on their obligations under the SMCR.

By drawing on information from multiple sources SMCR 360 creates and manages complete profiles.

It conducts dozens of checks every day and then alerts you to overdue requirements and upcoming tasks that you, or your senior managers and certified persons, need to attend to.

This means that you can confidently submit your senior managers for FCA approval, certify your material risk takers plus report overall compliance to regulators and auditors.
