Who we are
Kaizen Compliance Solutions was formed through a common vision; a desire to offer market leading products, customer service and quality performance through hiring the best people for the right roles. We at Kaizen are firm believers of ‘do it right, first time’. Duplication of efforts, under resourcing and incorrect skillsets to match responsibilities of a role are known areas of weakness in compliance functions.
Our ethos is to improve every aspect of your compliance to regulatory and company expectations. Improvements can always be made irrespective of size and impact. Looking at the bigger picture allows us to offer best services, tools and advise for you. Detailed reviews of your current systems, controls, process and people allow us to best recommend changes suited to your business, size and client type.
Kaizen is our name, it is also our philosophy.
By matching industry experts with best in class IT infrastructure Kaizen is able to offer clients a holistic approach to tackling financial crime. From an adhoc request to onboard a high risk PEP account to a batch request to remediate your entire client population – we are here to service your needs.
