As a fast growing regulatory consultancy, our people really are our most important asset. We have ambitious growth plans and are currently recruiting an associate based in our Hong Kong office who is happy to work across both Buy side and Sell side clients.

Typically you will be supporting clients across Investment Banking, Commercial Banking, Stock Brokers, Market makers and Asset Managers, Hedge Funds, Institutional Investors, Retail Investors and other Corporates

Since we started in 1999 we’ve been helping businesses in financial services (anything from high street banks to small start-ups), to thrive. We’ve built a team of professionals with the right experience and know-how to deal with regulation so clients can focus on their business goals. We are now about 85 people, with over 500 clients across the US, Europe and Asia with offices in London, Chicago, Hong Kong and Singapore working together to create a unique global advisory offering. And we are proud to stay independently owned.

As we specialise in helping clients solve difficult and interesting problems, we look for people who thrive on intellectual challenge, can roll up their sleeves to delve into issues and get satisfaction from helping clients, conduct a thorough analysis of a problem and translate that into practical advice. So we set high standards.
