Varramore's 12-month Review
Varramore Partners recently marked its 1-year anniversary as an FCA-authorised firm and we decided to take a look back at our achievements over this 12-month period.
While the operating environment over the past 12 months has been – to put it mildly – “challenging”, we are very pleased and proud at what we have managed to accomplish during this period. Whilst navigating the most fundamental UK political/economical shift in decades and operating through a global healthcare pandemic, we have been able to win new clients, continue to deliver high-quality services to existing clients, complete various bespoke projects and enhance our internal infrastructure. In particular, the successful launch of our Investment Services Platform, Conformité, which combines our three core services – Regulatory Hosting, Governance Risk & Compliance and Accounting Finance & Tax – is a milestone of which we are particularly proud.
We have stayed true to our mission of becoming a long-term, trusted and value-adding business partner to our clients. In addition, we continued to pursue our “boutiques for boutiques” approach –small firms helping small firms to achieve big things.
Our Managing Director, Gerard O’Brien, had this to say: “We’ve always been long-term in our view of growing our business. We look to develop our business organically by partnering with firms that share our ethos and ethics. Over the past 12 months, we’ve grown our business steadily and, in particular, have successfully launched our Investment Services Platform, Conformité. We are extremely grateful to those firms who have put their trust in Varramore to be their business partner and we will endeavour to continue to deliver our services to them in a highly-tailored, hands-on and friendly manner. And, if we add some more clients over the next 12 months, that would be great too!”.
