Market and regulatory environment
By adopting a structured and robust approach to the area of fund analysis and research, an advisory firm will set itself apart from the rest of the sector while helping to meet their regulatory requirements with a fully documented process.
In this way the firm will continue the journey towards making its business fully ‘RDR compliant’, delivering improved levels of advice and building trust with its clients. This will help achieve longer-term financial sustainability and, as such, meet some of the key requirements of the Retail Distribution Review.
