Rockstead gains quality assurance recognition

In a recent press release we announced that we had become fully registered on the FSQS supplier qualification system, managed by Hellios. FSQS is a community of leading financial institutions including banks, building societies, insurance companies and investment services, who collaborate with the primary objective of improving standards in the supplier industry.

We are delighted we have been able to meet the exacting requirements across all key risk control areas including information/cyber security, data privacy, business continuity, financial crime, conduct risk, financial, legal, and corporate responsibilities.

In today’s fast changing world financial institutions are recognising the importance of expert third-party supplier support. The community has agreed a single standard to measure suppliers’ abilities in the increasingly complex world of compliance. Demonstrating appropriate policies and governance controls are in place ensures efficient and timely onboarding of external suppliers. After all, financial institutions have enough on their plates and to have an accreditation that helps shortcut lengthy onboarding/procurement processes must be of benefit.

The FSQS Registered Mark is valued by some of the largest purchasers in the financial sector and indicates that we have gone through the processes required to demonstrate our commitment and credentials to the industry. As we approach our 13th anniversary and having a strong reputation in the financial services marketplace, we provide professional and ethical services backed by strong corporate governance and this quality assurance certification provides a simple confirmation of the standards we maintain. That is why we are delighted with our newly acquired accreditation.
