Empowering Brokerage Growth with Strategic Compliance Solutions


Interim outsourced CCO role, setup and enhancement of compliance workflows, and onboarding of a full-time, in-house CCO.


Our client, a fast-growing startup broker-dealer, was expanding its client base and investing into the next growth phase. Unfortunately, they had a critical gap in their senior leadership structure – the Chief Compliance Officer (CCO). The absence of a CCO posed a threat to the firm's regulatory integrity and operational effectiveness, which increased regulatory risks and potentially hindered growth.


The broker-dealer was confronted with three key challenges. They needed to:

  1. Immediately hire a competent and professional CCO on an interim basis.

  2. Establish robust compliance workflows to streamline operations, promote transparency, and ensure continued adherence to regulatory standards.

  3. Facilitate the onboarding process for the hired, permanent CCO, ensuring a seamless transition and immediate effectiveness in the role.

Leveraging their extensive industry experience, they guided the broker-dealer through complex regulatory landscapes, ensuring full compliance with financial regulations.

  • Compliance Workflow Setup: We then focused on the creation and implementation of effective compliance workflows.

  • New CCO Onboarding Support: Finally, as the broker-dealer hired a permanent CCO, we facilitated the transition. Our team worked closely with the new hire, providing comprehensive training on the established compliance workflows and offering insight into the changing regulatory requirements of broker-dealers.
