“Skyline Partners have been engaged with ICSR since the beginning of the year. We have been very impressed with their knowledge and experience, particularly with regard to regulatory and legal structuring for operating as an insurance intermediary internationally . ICSR have been very flexible recognising that we are a start-up organisation. They have also made some key industry introductions for us which have been aligned to our strategy and direction and been very beneficial for us. Kenneth and Jason are a pleasure to work with and Skyline Partners would fully endorse them to any potential clients of ICSR. ”

“ICSR has worked closely with Gryphon during the build of our products and processes. They have helped us navigate a variety of complex regulatory issues; not least the development of our compliance framework and controls, regulatory perimeter guidance, and arrangements with business and trading partners. Jason Jones has led the ICSR team involved and his insight, efforts and assistance have been greatly appreciated. We are very happy to have ICSR as a support partner as we continue our journey.”

“ICSR aided us in the design and development of a policy wording and associated documents. They provided us with prompt, considered, thorough and useful assistance. We intend to engage ICSR in relation to similar matters in the future.”

“ICSR was engaged to help my firm manage a skilled persons review covering Corporate Governance, Conduct Risk and Culture from inception through to action plan. Ken Underhill and John Moffatt provided tailored advice, very useful insight and a meaningful can-do attitude to my team, including members of the Board. They are not your typical consultants; they listen well, engage well across all levels of staff and roll up their sleeves to help us both respond efficiently to information requests as well as prepare the team for interviews. ICSR not only has deep and relevant expertise in UK/EU regulatory and Solvency II matters but also has an effective and results oriented approach which proved to be quite beneficial to our firm.”

“We retained ICSR to help us work through the implications of Brexit. Ken Underhill facilitated workshops for our management team, which allowed us to quickly understand the complexities of Brexit, how those issues applied to the specifics of our business and what steps we needed to take to achieve the desired result. Ken has a wealth of international corporate experience; crucially, Ken not only understands the theory but he can apply it in practice. We were delighted to have Ken working with our team and we will certainly look to do more with ICSR in the future.”

“Ken Underhill is talented and indefatigable. He possesses an unusually broad range of knowledge about the operation and regulation of the European insurance market. Time after time Ken has demonstrated the ability to anticipate and identify regulatory reactions to various company actions – and inactions. Equally importantly, he understands how to craft common-sense solutions that provide compliance certainty while maximizing business opportunities. Having worked with Ken on numerous complex business restructurings and regulatory matters throughout the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe, I can attest to his expertise in navigating financial services providers through the challenging European regulatory environment.”

“ICSR were able at short notice to assist us, an international insurance group with a presence in London, to prepare for and respond to a deep review by our regulators of certain aspects of our business including Governance and Conduct. ICSR were very helpful in accurately identifying the issues we needed to address and advising us on the right approach to do so. ICSR worked with us for several months while we resolved all our issues and were instrumental in helping to ensure we reached the resolution appropriate to our circumstances. In addition, ICSR provided an excellent interim Compliance Officer, and were agreeable to several necessary extensions. We were very pleased with their approach, expertise, insight and flexibility.”
