Program Review

Prioritize your most urgent challenges with a Compliance Program Review.

Assess Your Programs

Identify gaps in your programs through a policies and procedures or Written Supervisory Procedures assessment. Oyster Consulting will engage your C-Suite peers through discussion, not disruption, in a collaborative environment while providing long-term value for your firm.

Supervisory Program Reviews

No matter how strong your compliance program is, important tasks can fall through the cracks. Attrition, staffing shortages or simply not having the right resources in place can cause compliance gaps. When this happens, it makes sense to supplement your team so your program runs efficiently, without disrupting current processes. Oyster’s compliance experts can fill in the gaps by conducting Email Reviews, Branch Exams and Advertising Program Reviews.

Annual Reviews

Whether you are a broker-dealer, registered investment advisor, or alternative trading system, annual reviews are required and provide an excellent opportunity to turn deficiencies into action items. In addition to the services below, Oyster’s team of CCOs, former regulators and compliance experts can conduct Best Execution, Employee Trade Monitoring Program and Information Security reviews, as well as ATS Annual Audits and internal audits for validation or program assessment.
