Compliance Audit and Process Walk-Through

This involves examining the general state of a company’s compliance status with legislation applicable to it as a registered capital market operator in Nigeria.

The process walk-through exercise will identify areas where the Company is non–compliant and develop strategies for closing the gaps.

Scope of review:

  • Regulatory Returns
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Document Management System
  • Processes
  • Compliance with Investment and Securities Act and the SEC Rules.

Based on our audit findings, we will develop a Regulatory Compliance Action Plan, which will highlight remedial actions and process improvements that need to be taken to bring the business in line with regulatory standards. In this regard, we will:

  • Agree with the Company on a realistic implementation timeline
  • Draft relevant compliance documents/policies (Where the Company does not have such) and modify/update existing documents /policies, through the insertion of standard clauses, to meet regulatory requirements and best practices.
  • Advise on processes and tools/technology to be deployed for improved efficiency.

Policy Development and Documentation

Do you need bespoke compliance related policies for your business? If yes, you are in the right place.

A Policy is a written statement, which defines an organisation’s position or strategy on the matter(s) the policies address. A Policy answers the question “what are we going to do about ‘X’?”, defines the parameters for decision-making and clarifies compliance issues for staff. It is a planned line of conduct in the light of which individual decisions are made and coordination achieved.

Here are some compliance related policies and procedures that a business should put in place:

  1. Compliance Manual (KYC Policy, AML/CFT/CPF Policy to be embedded)
  2. Anti Corruption Policy,
  3. Anti-Bribery Policy,
  4. Customer Complaints Management Policy
  5. Gift Policy
  6. Code of Conduct
