Outsource your Risk & Compliance needs

Why outsource your operational risk?

A small or medium sized organisation requires a robust 1st, 2nd and 3rd line to identify, assess, monitor, manage and report operational risk. However this requires substantial investment in both people and systems.

1st Risk Solutions offers the chance to leverage operational risk expertise on an independent, flexible, cost effective basis to augment your 3 lines of defence requirements.

We provide the operational risk SMEs as resource that can be flexed to suit your current or emerging needs.
