Independent Financial Adviser & Broker Screening


KEEPING ON TOP OF THE SURGE OF NEW ENTRANTS TO PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS

The advent of Open Banking and advanced Fintech solutions provide many more sales opportunities to brokers and Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs), and there have also been thousands of new entrants to enabler communities since the introduction of sweeping reforms to pension regulations and the roll out of workplace pensions.

Many providers are still reliant on paper based or spreadsheet systems to screen and validate their network of enablers and to ensure that they are appropriately qualified and compliant - which are prone to human error and pose significant organisational challenges when managing the workflow. 

GROWING NUMBERS OF ADVISERS

Regulatory returns indicate a total of 25,951 advisers as at the end of November 2017.

EXPOSURE TO RISK AND POTENTIAL FRAUD

Fraudsters are seizing on new opportunities presented by the new ways financial products are presented and managed.

COMPLIANCE AND REGULATIONS

The FCA requires that firms must have robust governance, risk procedures and internal control to manage financial crime risk.

Boarding new and previously unknown IFAs and brokers comes with an inherent risk to the business in terms of potential exposure to fraud. Stories abound of policies being incepted on non-existent customers, non-payment of premiums, mis-selling and more stemming from rogue IFAs and brokers interested in making short term fraud gains across multiple providers before disappearing with the funds.
