Assent Legal is a bespoke law firm that provides specialised services to the Financial Services industry and its clients. Such services include Corporate Governance frameworks, FAIS, FICA, LTIA and STIA Compliance, Risk Management, Training, Business Support services, Dispute Resolution and administration of Deceased Estates.
We are a registered compliance practice with the Financial Services Board and mandated to provide outsourced compliance in terms of The Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act 37 of 2002 (FAIS) as well as the Financial Intelligence Centre Act (FICA) for both Category I and Category II FSP’s.
As a leading compliance practice, we offer a wide variety of services to Insurers, UMA’s, Asset Managers, Cel Captives and FSP’s, remaining uncompromising in our independence and our commitment to providing value in a fair manner. We focus on helping our clients to work within the framework of the regulatory environment, providing them with a fully operable compliance system, which has been tried and tested with great success.
We focus on providing tailor-made services to each client, which always includes an element of the “Treating Customer’s Fairly” initiative launched by the Financial Services Board, and have developed processes to assist our clients in complying with and utilising this for a competitive advantage.
FAIS demands a very specific process be followed in complaint handling. We offer complaint resolution services in the event of a dispute or complaint. In addition, we also assist policyholders with their complaints and un-paid claims, an area in which we have achieved great success.
Assent also offers training in various areas within the regulatory environment.
Our legal services include establishment and registration of trusts, administration of Deceased Estates and advice regarding the drafting of a last Will and Testament.
At Assent we believe that family comes first and our clients are part of our family.
