SMS becomes Financial Services Qualification System (FSQS) registered
SMS has successfully completed the FSQS Third Party Risk Management and Compliance process; an increasingly essential requirement for organisations that offer services and solutions to the financial services sector.
FSQS is a community of financial institutions including banks, building societies, insurance companies and investment services, collaborating to agree a single standard for managing the increasing complexity of third and fourth-party information needed to demonstrate compliance to regulators, policies, and governance controls.
By joining FSQS, SMS is now able to call on a solution that reduces the time, cost, resources, and duplication needed to provide information to Banks, Building Societies, Insurance Companies, and Investment Companies when providing our energy services to them.
