Our Company

Remote Compliance is an independent compliance and risk consulting business. We specialise in anti-money laundering and countering financing of terrorism (aml/cft) compliance as well as financial adviser compliance.

Remote Compliance formed in early 2016 after our two current directors realised there was a need for businesses and organisations to have a simple cost-effective way of being compliant with AML/CFT obligations. The company name represents exactly what our business is all about.

We believe that long meetings and all the associated administration takes up productive hours and ultimately can be costly. Currently technology means you can carry out your compliance obligations via secure remote web portal access which saves time and money.

Ensuring entities have effective and sensible AML/CFT compliance procedures in place that are up to the standards set by the regulators.

Helping businesses understand the compliance requirements and how it actually benefits their business overall.

What do you do outside work? 

I enjoy the sporting arena and play golf and squash, along with fishing when I can. Family time with the children & grandchildren is also very important to me. Watching my favourite sports teams, the Crusaders and the All Black rugby teams along with the American football team, the SF49ers is also high on my outside work activities list.

Lastly but by no means the least favourite activity is to listen to good music and partaking in a good glass of wine with friends.

After getting valuable experience in both institutions, I ran my own business,  consulting to the wider financial industry in all aspects of compliance. This included the area of Anti-Money Laundering and Countering Financing of Terrorism.
