It is not unusual for financial services businesses to experience a turnover of compliance personnel, which leaves them with temporary resourcing issues pending the arrival of permanent replacements. Whilst Cyan cannot undertake Key Person roles, we are often asked to support businesses on both a part-time or full-time basis.
