Governance, Risk and Compliance

Compliance is more than prevention of financial economic crime. Compliance to us is about growth and long-term value creation, by strengthening the integrity of the organization and stimulating sound and ethical business operations.

The specialists of RSM’s Governance, Risk and Compliance service are internationally recognized consultants with a focus on compliance within both the financial and non-financial industries. We pride ourselves on offering excellent services to organizations susceptible to internal and external integrity risks that could harm their business operations. We distinguish ourselves by being a niche consultancy firm providing advisory services, covering all aspects of  governance and compliance with laws and regulations, as well as industry standards, aimed at preventing financial economic crime (such as money laundering, terrorist financing, evasion of sanctions and export controls).

What we do

Over a decade, we have advised and supported numerous financial institutions and industrial corporations within the aerospace and defense, energy/oil &  gas, technology manufacturing, and logistics sectors in managing major integrity/reputational risks associated with their business activities. Our services range from initial scans on the status of our client’s compliance framework to assisting in systematic integrity risk assessments, comprehensive (re)designs and tests of effectiveness of implemented policies, procedures and other measures. When needed we assist in remedy programs that may be required after supervisory surveys have resulted in findings that require additional measures.

We contribute to industry standard setting bodies and fora, and provide trainings, workshops and support to all client groups, as well as to supervisory authorities and auditors.


Good governance and moreover proper behaviour and culture have been on top of the regulatory agenda and are a prominent feature for the Board and Senior Managers at firms across the different industries. Compliance is only effective and sustainable if it is duly embedded in the culture of the organization and the behaviour of its staff. RSM offers its services as your senior management liaison, trusted boardroom advisor, culture-, and behaviour coach, and your organization’s sounding board. More information about Governance. 


We help your organization managing the process of identifying, assessing and mitigating integrity risks and mirror residual risks with the stated risk appetite. We are experienced in setting up a Systematic Integrity Risk Analysis (SIRA) for both financial institutions as industrial parties, providing independent monitoring / auditing services of your compliance program, and assist in setting up and implementing compliance plans.
