Paul Staples

As a member of our financial service advisory team, I’m an experienced regulatory consultant providing practical and pragmatic advice to a range of firms. Over the previous 20 years, I have developed significant experience particularly working with firms from the investment management and insurance sectors.

My particular interest lies in regulation that supports customer protection. I’m a subject matter expert in the FCA’s Client Assets (CASS) regime and have led a number of Skilled Person (section 166) reviews within the investment management, banking and customer credit sectors. In recent years, I have developed complementary experience of the payments sector, especially around safeguarding and prudential requirements. I also regularly provide broader regulatory assurance as part of governance, risk management and remediation engagements.

Despite best attempts, I cannot hide the fact that I’m a chartered accountant(!) having originally qualified through our Audit practice, with subsequent experience in corporate finance; and prior to joining the firm, operational roles in banking and investment management.

When not working, I’m kept busy (and tired) by my three young children, tennis, and my trustee role for a local Bristol charity.
