Ocorian is delighted to announce that its compliance team has been shortlisted in the categories of Compliance Consultancy Firm of the Year, Compliance Team of the Year - Financial Services, and Technology Partner of the Year at the ICA Compliance Awards 2023, recognising their outstanding dedication and exemplary work in the financial crime and regulatory compliance landscape.

The award entries were reviewed and assessed by a judging panel comprising senior compliance and financial crime prevention leaders who were looking for outstanding achievements, innovation, collaboration, and excellence across individual submissions, team projects and business initiatives.

Shortlisted in three categories, the Ocorian team is comprised of former FCA regulators.

Traci Pham, Managing Director, commented "We are experienced, with 90% of staff on the Newgate team consultant ex-regulators. Many of our team have worked within the industry for decades and those of us who have been former FCA regulators were so for at least a decade. We offer a proprietary technological solution called the GATEway providing online training, compliance monitoring, employee affirmations and attestations in one portal."

"We are client centric and provide appropriate, pragmatic, and flexible solutions. We are entrepreneurial and agile in servicing clients (e.g., building an online compliance training platform from scratch, or offering additional tailored courses on request) whilst also leveraging our global network to provide a streamlined service."

Being shortlisted for an ICA Awards provides Ocorian with an independent validation of their hard work and commitment to compliance practices and helps to benchmark achievements with peers across the UK and Europe.

This much-deserved recognition has helped demonstrate how we're helping to drive innovation and standards across the sector.

Scheduled to take place on 27 April 2023, 6:30PM (BST) at the Hilton London Bankside, UK, the ICA Compliance Awards are the UK's only awards recognising teams and individuals across the financial crime prevention and regulatory compliance community.
