Governance is one of the most important but often neglected areas of an effective Compliance programme. It is important that companies can demonstrate oversight and management of Compliance risks. Well-implemented governance programmes will ensure that the Compliance risks are addressed and ensure that this is demonstrable to any concerned third parties.

A well-designed and implemented Governance framework can also demonstrate the all-important management oversight and “tone from the top” which can be essential in a situation where the compliance programme is reviewed by a regulator or authority.

How we can help

Assistance in designing your Compliance programme: We can help design and implement a Compliance Structure which fits into your company’s existing corporate governance framework. Our experience creating and managing Compliance Programmes in different companies working in different areas of the Commodities and Financial markets means that we have the experience to propose formats appropriate to your needs such as Compliance Committees or other Board Oversight Processes.

Support in setting up management reporting processes: We can help design and implement management reporting processes, and ensure that the right people receive the information they require for oversight purposes. This can be in the form of management reporting frameworks or considered Key Performance Indicators.


Most companies and Compliance Departments have to produce policies and procedures in isolation due to the perceived commercial sensitivity of the subject matter. Sybius can help provide assurance over your Compliance Programmes, confirming the appropriateness and completeness of what has been implemented.

We can review your existing policies, procedures and processes to identify enhancements or potential gaps and help you ensure your company has an efficient fit-for-purpose Compliance programme.

How we can help

Gap Analysis and Reviews: We can provide an impartial and external review of your Compliance programme and help identify areas where controls can be improved or optimised. We can help produce prioritised implementation plans to help you manage the workload and resources.

Working with our Law Firm partners, this work can be offered as part of legal advice and therefore can be privileged.

Investigations: Control failures or errors can occur, it is however key to identify the reasons for their failure and address the issues as quickly as possible. We can help quickly provide resources and experience to investigate control failures and identify their root causes, helping you to identify the most appropriate remediation and solutions.
