Training Delivered by Industry Experts

Our training packages are collated and delivered by industry subject matter experts, who truly understand the markets, processes and the aspects of regulation which are relevant to your specific business model.

Each of our experts has worked extensively within the commodities and compliance industry for a minimum of 20 years, often spanning senior roles as traders, compliance heads, regulatory advisors, risk managers or technical specialists.

We believe that the best way to learn is through experience.
This means that the training we deliver to you is highly relevant, tried-and-tested, and reflects how other industry majors address these same areas.

By combining our expertise with your specific business model, our industry experts can design a training package for your team which focusses on the key areas of regulations and compliance, which are tailored to your business model.

Regulatory Compliance – Analysis & Training

It’s prudent for all trading organizations to pause and take stock of their compliance processes at regular intervals.   Trading businesses evolve over time, operating across different markets and jurisdictions with a varying array of physical and financial traded instruments.

The technology providers and trade repositories parties rely upon for data reporting or delegated services also evolve – all of which may lead to disconnects or missed controls that were not envisaged when the processes were first defined.

We provide short, focused risk assessments for your specific business, whereby we work with your in-house teams to review your trading activities, your processes for reporting to the regulator (including reporting to repositories, 3rd party providers, delegated reporting) and work to identify any potential errors or omissions in your process.

We can then work with you in rectifying those breaks, providing staff training, knowledge sharing or mentoring to ensure your reporting obligations are fully met and documented.

We can provide this service across multiple regulatory regimes and processes, including;

  • Global Regulatory Overviews
  • Jurisdictional Overviews
  • – UK, Europe, US, Asia-Pacific
  • Transaction Reporting Support
  • Orders, Trades and Positions – Paper and Physical
  • Financial Crime
  • – KYC, AML, EDD, ABC and Sanctions
  • Market Surveillance
  • – MAR, in-house Monitoring

A Tailored Approach to Training

We believe that training needs to be tailored to your business, not a generic ‘one size fits all’ approach. The training needs of an investment bank should not be the same as those of a commodity producer.

The commodities market place is highly specific, with each firm trading across different commodities, multiple locations, strategies, and with a mix of physical and financial products, which may fall under multiple regulatory regimes..

We perform a risk assessment to define an agreed scope with our clients, ensuring that the training delivered is relevant to the needs of your business.

Drawing upon our experience and expertise in regulations and compliance, MLS Partners can help clients to better understand their exposure to global regulations and to develop knowledge to mitigate and manage compliance risks.
