We work extensively with members of the Association of Financial Mutuals who have a diverse and geographically spread membership. We provide assistance to Boards helping them to understand the (ever changing) regulatory framework in the UK and how to improve their effectiveness.

In our experience there are particular challenges for Boards in this sector:

  • Understanding the impact of the new Senior Manager regime and what regulators are looking for when they ask questions
  • Managing the diverse range of knowledge and experience of Directors, many of whom are not from a financial services
  • Balancing the need to adopt regulations designed for profit making entities with the mutual concept    

BP&E Global provide a dedicated service for Boards offering evaluation, executive coaching, and regulatory insights. 

We address both the policy and people aspects of Board performance through a combination of:

  • Commercial understanding of the sector
  • Knowledge of regulatory and legal requirements and the latest thinking on governance issues
  • Development and coaching expertise to fully analyse the issues and address them
  • Independent support for Directors through the S166 process

Always up-to-date with regulatory and governance developments we speak regularly at conferences on board performance matters and write articles for publication by specialist magazines and websites such as Governance and Compliance, ICSA, Complinet, and Thomson Reuters. 

Judy Delaforce, our CEO has worked as a Regulator and at Board and Senior Management level with a wide range of organisations in the financial services industry, frequently including those from a variety of overseas ownership, locations and cultures. Her speciality is Board evaluations.
