Let's get started!

“We used HiveRisk to undertake both AML Regulation 18 and 21 Audits. Kate attended our site for one day, reviewing our documents, processes and undertaking file reviews. She was extremely helpful and provided us with some very useful feedback, which we adopted to improve our Firm Wide AML Risk Assessment. HiveRisk have always been helpful and swift to respond to any enquiries that we may have.”
