Simcocks Advocate, Sarah Wolter, has been awarded the ICA International Diploma in Governance, Risk and Compliance.
The International Compliance Association qualification is designed as an advanced programme for senior industry practitioners, to build on existing experience by providing enhanced skills, knowledge and expertise.
Sarah was able to complete the course over a nine month period, and attended four workshops here on the Island. The course covers:
- Approaches to Regulation
- Understanding What Makes an Effective Compliance Officer
- Designing an Effective Governance, Risk and Compliance System
- Prudential Regulation in a Post-Credit Crunch World
- Governance, Culture and the Benefits of Compliance
- Managing the Risk of Money Laundering and Financial Crime
Having completed this qualification, Sarah isn’t resting on her laurels, however, and her next challenge is the STEP Certificate in International Trust Management and then the STEP Diploma, which will enable her to deepen her knowledge and expertise in the area of trusts.
Simcocks director, Alex Spencer, commented:
“We’re extremely proud of Sarah’s development and her continued enthusiasm to enhance her skills. At Simcocks we place great importance on the training and development of our team members, and it’s a joy to see such talent flourishing. Sarah’s skills will further strengthen our Regulatory and Compliance service.”
