    With the regulatory world evolving and becoming ever more complex, firms find themselves under constant scrutiny in ensuring they remain compliant. For some, the upkeep of a compliant culture and the managing of regulatory risks, can prove to be difficult as well as time-consuming.

    At Thistle Initiatives we offer a range of compliance services, to provide you with the support, advice and confidence you need to ensure your business adheres to Ofgem’s rules and regulations. Our compliance services can also be tailored-fit to your firm’s regulatory requirements, whether it’s specific permissions you require under, or a complete re-write of your compliance documents, Thistle Initiatives will install an effective framework which maintains regulatory compliance within your business activities.

    We have a broad portfolio of clients, from startup firms wanting oversight of their regulatory needs, to existing UK award-winning providers needing a complete review of their entire systems and controls. Our approach allows us to gain a deeper understanding of your business model and ultimately Thistle Initiatives can drive you towards your compliance goal.

    In summary, the mission of Thistle Initiatives is to help you embed a culture of compliance in the genes of your firm and contribute to your firm’s success.
