INTRODUCTION

INTRODUCTION

  • TO: THE KEY INDIVIDUALS AND GOVERNING AUTHORITY

    The content of this report is based on our findings of work performed during the period under review, and includes assessment of documentation, sampling and onsite verification. The report should be read in the context of any contemporaneous notes, as well as email correspondence relating to the specific themes.

    The purpose of this engagement is the assessment of compliance maturity within your business. Where you have existing controls, these will be assessed and recommendations made where necessary. Policies and procedures are tested in respect of their effectiveness during our compliance monitoring, however it is important to establish a baseline so as to ensure we can assist in addressing your risk areas, as part of your compliance risk plan.

    Once the report has been completed, we will assist you where required with sample documents, templates or guidance, as part of the process of getting your risks managed as realistically as possible.

    Please note that although we can assist you with administrative functions and tools and templates, it's incumbent on you to ensure implementation. We cannot make you compliant, we can merely assist you with the right tools. It is also essential that these be customised by you to ensure appropriateness for your business.

  • Our process is as follows:
    We provide you with your workflow in advance, and will be reviewing these requirements in the quarter following. Our meetings focus on assessing the extent of your compliance in these predetermined areas, addressing any concerns and assisting you where required. it is incumbent on you to address any non-compliance and ensure we are notified of amendments, and measures taken to rectify these risks.

    We cannot implement and address the workflow for you. This remains your responsibility and the responsibility of your Governing Authority. Failure to address compliance risk places your business at risk of Legislative, Financial and Reputational penalties, which are unnecessary and unproductive. We strongly urge you to complete your workflow and send this to us on a monthly basis so that we can review these prior to our onsite monitoring and assessment, in order for you to reap the most benefit from these reviews.

    Should you need assistance in any of the tasks, please contact our offices and we will assist where possible.

  • The areas covered during the period under review include your adherence to compliance obligations imposed by the FAIS Act, as well as anti money laundering legislation.

    You are provided with a workflow in respect of compliance obligations for such period, to be completed monthly. It is expected that you follow this workflow and record all requirements in your compliance file, so that when we conduct our monitoring, evidence and sampling is easily accessible and in one place.

    Where you supply us with the completed monthly tasks and verification in advance, this allows us to spend more time on value add and assistance with your risk register discussions when we conduct our onsite verification.

  • When we conduct our compliance monitoring, we will be assessing:
    1. The compliance risk
    2. Whether policies and procedures have been adopted to address this risk
    3. The effectiveness of these policies and procedures as a control

    In other words, unless there is sufficient evidence of the adequate implementation and monitoring of the area in question by you, as the FSP, we are required to note the area as deficient.

    Our purpose is to assist you to a degree whereby we believe you have adequate measures in place to address compliance risk whilst still ensuring productive business function and efficiency. Compliance is intended to add to your efficiency and bottom line, not detract from this.

REPORTING

  • Compliance matters which remain unresolved place your business at risk. Please ensure any area which remains a compliance concern is addressed or the matter may have to be reported to the Regulator.

    Any material non-compliance is required to be reported, regardless of whether it is in the process of being addressed or not, and may lead to penalties or regulatory action. Please contact our offices should you require assistance or have any questions as to what is expected.

  • Compliance Monitoring and Reporting The compliance practice believes the information contained within this risk assessment to be correct based on evidence provided to the compliance assessor as at time of audit, together with verifiable evidence. The report is based on matters which were observed or came to the attention of the assessor during the day of the assessment and should not be relied upon as an exhaustive record of all possible risks or hazards that may exist or potential improvements that can be made. It remains the responsibility of the Key Individual and the Managing body of the business to ensure that compliance matters are implemented, monitored and addressed where required.
    A COPY OF THIS REPORT SHOULD BE FORWARDED TO THE KEY INDIVIDUAL AND MANAGING BODY OF THE BUSINESS AND RISKS WHICH HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED SHOULD BE ADDRESSED AND RECTIFIED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE All areas requiring attention are highlighted in red. A non-compliance process will be implemented in respect of all areas identified as requiring attention. you will be reminded as to areas requiring attention.
    Please note that CONTINUED NON-COMPLIANCE, despite reminders, has to be reported to the Financial Services Board, however, unless the non-compliance is material, a reasonable time is provided to address this before such report is deemed necessary. In the event of there being any template, document or example which you may require to assist you, please contact your compliance officer who will gladly assist. - dawn@legal1.co.za ; gerard@legal1.co.za; gaylene@legal1.co.za ; bianca@legal1.co.za

COMPLIANCE REVIEW FOR THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2018 - SEPTEMBER 2017 - NOVEMBER 2017

  • 2018 compliance monitoring will be focussing to a large extent on assisting you to adopt, implement and apply the policies, processes and controls required from a financial services provider, as well as provide guidance on your risk identification, recording and management.

    Risk management does not entail the mere adoption of policy, without the alignment of this with your business strategy, your risk management plan, and incorporating these into your standard operating procedures with the appropriate controls. As such, at every engagement, we will be focussing on reviewing your risk plan and effectively assist you in identifying both risk and risk controls which may be required in your business.

  • Do you have updated PI insurance?

  • DETERMINING PI LIMITS:
    Jurisdiction: FAIS Ombud has a maximum jurisdiction of R800 000. This may be per claim

    Contractual obligations:
    These are obligations assumed by you under professional service agreements

    Perceived Exposures:
    This involves an assessment of the possible causes of loss, injury or damage that may give rise to a professional negligence claim against you, either as a maximum exposure in terms of losses and expenses total, or maximum exposure single claim

    Perceived value:
    Will the PI cover your particular event? Only if the action occurs during the cover period. Anything which occurred before (causa) is not included unless you buy retrospective cover. PI cover lapses as soon as you cancel the policy. Even if the claim comes to light when the policy was in place, i.e. the error was made 6 months prior to the policy’s cancellation, you still won’t be covered.

    Financial Loss
    Monetary loss suffered by a party as a result of an actual or alleged breach of professional duty. Add in legal expenses and possible penalties.

    Your willingness and ability to carry financial risk
    This requires an assessment of the extent to which you are prepared to expose your assets by either carrying a higher excess or lower policy limit and your ability to control the risk or transfer liability to other parties involved.

    Affordability
    With PI being a significant overhead you will need to weigh up the above factors against what is economically viable for you. In this regard increasing the limit may not seem feasible however carrying a higher limit opens up the possibility for additional clients.
