The Ethics Mark

David Jackman has been working on embedding a values-led approach as a way of recasting business models or maturing organisations since 2002. David Jackman was the first to set out an ‘ethical’ framework for financial services – at FCA.  This led to the TCF and RDR initiatives that are now part of mainstream regulatory approaches in the UK and have been followed in many other jurisdictions. The approach is based on pioneering work and has been developed internationally with major institutions in a range of sectors. We offer an authentication process called The Ethics Mark.

How regulation and compliance needs to change to be effective
Based on a groundbreaking text book published in 2015 by David Jackman, ‘The Compliance Revolution’ is available on Amazon and from the publisher Wiley. The theme explores how compliance must evolve and avoid becoming overly operational and develop the skills, tools and confidence to be a strategic, judgement-based profession that adds lasting value through a maturity approach.

A workshop is available for Compliance Departments and Senior Managers. A parallel version of the programme has also been created for Regulators.
