SMCR Consultancy

Understanding and awareness with PeopleClear SMCR Consultants

The Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) was introduced in March 2016 by UK regulators, namely the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). SMCR applies to all financial services businesses, including banks, building societies, credit unions, insurers and major investment firms. It is designed to improve standards of conduct within the sector and promote a culture of individual accountability.

We are a RegTech company created to deliver regulatory solutions to financial services firms. Our cloud-hosted and ISO27001-compliant platform helps businesses understand their SMCR responsibilities and provides them with the tools they need to meet them. 

PeopleClear was founded by Andrew Pullman, CEO of People Risk Solutions Ltd, who has over 30 years of experience working with senior managers, compliance, and HR teams across the financial services industry. We have assembled a team and carefully selected partners with the expertise and knowledge to help businesses stay up to date with the latest regulations and ensure they comply with SMCR requirements.
