Company secretaries are remarkably well-placed to make a substantial contribution towards creating an environment in which the board can work effectively. Part of that role involves reducing the risk of compliance breaches, which can seriously damage a company's reputation.

To comply with the UK's highly regulated corporate governance requirements, listed companies need quality, independent and objective advice, occasional additional resource and knowledge about recent developments and market practice.

We seek to satisfy this need by providing the in-house secretarial function with support of the highest quality, delivered with integrity. That is our overriding aim.
