At McCole & Co. Consultants Limited, we are delighted to announce our membership in the Letterkenny Chamber. This partnership signifies a new chapter for our consultancy as we join forces with like-minded professionals in promoting business excellence and driving regulatory compliance within the financial services industry. We would like to express our gratitude to the Chamber of Commerce for their warm welcome and the opportunity to collaborate with fellow industry leaders.

Commitment to Regulatory Compliance:
As a regulatory compliance consultancy, our mission at McCole & Co. Consultants Limited is to empower financial professionals, including Mortgage, Insurance & Investment Brokers, Accountants, Credit Unions, Bureau de Change, and Loss Assessors, to navigate the intricate landscape of regulatory obligations. We understand the ever-evolving nature of compliance requirements and the challenges businesses face in meeting them. With our expertise and personalised approach, we provide comprehensive solutions to ensure our clients remain compliant and thrive in their respective sectors.
Expertise and Background:
Led by Dermot McCole, our team brings over ten years of experience in compliance and financial services. Dermot’s wide career includes employment with illustrious organisations including the Central Bank of Ireland, Davy Stockbrokers, and the Financial Services & Pensions Ombudsman (FSPO). His qualification as a solicitor and employment as a Part-Time Law Lecturer at ATU Donegal further enhances his expertise and understanding of the intricacies of regulatory compliance.
Supporting Businesses Amidst Brexit Challenges:
In addition to our commitment to local businesses, we have also been working closely with Loss Assessors, Mortgage, Investment, and Insurance Brokers from the UK (Northern Ireland, England, Scotland & Wales) who seek to establish a presence in Ireland amidst the challenges posed by Brexit. Our technical proficiency and in-depth knowledge of the Central Bank’s authorisation process enable us to guide these businesses seamlessly through the regulatory requirements, simplifying the transition and ensuring a smooth path to authorisation. Once authorisation has been approved by the Central Bank, businesses have the opportunity of providing (or passporting) their financial services anywhere throughout the 27 Member States of the EU!

Thorough assessments of businesses’ compliance frameworks to identify gaps and provide recommendations for improvement.
The Central Bank’s Authorisation Process:
Guiding businesses through the complex steps of obtaining authorisation from the Central Bank.
Anti-Money Laundering & CFT:
Assisting businesses in implementing robust anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing measures.
Providing customised CPD-accredited training programs to enhance staff members’ compliance knowledge and skills.
Regulatory Inspections and Interviews:
Preparing businesses for regulatory inspections and offering support during interviews.
The Central Bank’s Conduct of Business Rules:
Ensuring businesses comply with the Central Bank’s conduct of business requirements, such as Know Your Customer (KYC) and suitability obligations.
Evaluating businesses’ policies and procedures through onsite testing to identify areas for enhancement.
The Central Bank’s Fitness & Probity Regime:
