Compliance outsourcing and consultancy services
The dynamic financial environment demands professional compliance facilities like outsourcing and consultancy services. Total Solutions Middle East responds to this need with an innovative approach and offers compliance outsourcing and consultancy services to its clients.
DFSA requires the accredited firms to appoint an Authorised Individual to perform the compliance and money laundering reporting officer (MLRO) functions. Firms have the option to hire either full time employees or outsource the compliance and MLRO responsibilities to Total Solutions Middle East (TSME). When services are outsourced to TSME, one of the TSME’s experienced compliance specialists becomes the firm’s designated person for the compliance functions and operates under the firm’s instructions and responsibility.
TSME’s compliance consultant can also be appointed as the firm’s risk reporting officer, a responsible person for data protection and as company secretory. Since 2004, TSME has built up a strong reputation in DIFC and has a sound relationship with the concerned authorities.
TSME’s agreement covers detailed job description and everything that a firm and DFSA can expect from a compliance officer/money laundering reporting officer.
