Welcome to Managed Initiatives, the company I founded in 2004 to support small banks and investment firms with meeting prudential regulatory requirements, such as Basel III and CRD IV. In addition to running numerous workshops on the different aspects of risk management frameworks, I have provided practical assistance to a number of banks and investment firms in preparing and reviewing their ICAAPs, ILAAPs, Recovery Plans and Risk Appetite Statements.

My experience in the banking, finance and insurance sector spans more than 25 years. Managed Initiatives' current and past clients include Alpha Bank London, British Arab Commercial Bank, Bank of Communications (UK), Bank Leumi (UK), Crown Agents Bank, FBN Bank (UK), Ghana International Bank, Havin Bank, Reliance Bank, UBA Capital (Europe), Union Bank UK, United Bank UK and Zenith Bank (UK).

Prior to forming Managed Initiatives, I was the principal banking and finance consultant for Consyse Limited, a company which I co-founded in 1990. During that time I was responsible for leading many business and IT projects, including strategic reviews, change management initiatives and the implementation of complex financial systems.

More recently I have assisted several companies in meeting Basel III / CRD IV requirements, including the design and structure of their key risk reports (RAS, ILAAP, ICAAP, Recovery Plan). This has involved briefing directors and senior managers on regulatory issues and implications, formulating implementation strategy, undertaking gap / impact / cost analyses, reviewing risk management processes, establishing methods for risk quantification and allocation of capital / liquidity resources, and agreeing risk assessment methods and procedures.

Should the above appear relevant to your current situation, please contact me. I should be pleased to discuss any Basel III / CRD IV concerns on an informal basis, and if this proves helpful you may wish to take things further.

Please call me on 01727 762822 (mobile 0774 262 3331) or e-mail.
