With this growth of the compliance industry and also the continued development of our technology, consulting and data solutions to large businesses, we recognise that we are in a great position to push the firm even further in our growth trajectory.

"We continue to grow and expand as a business in the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and we have very large goals for the next few years to grow our clients' businesses in a sustainable and ethical way that meets or exceeds industry, government and community expectations.
