Our Credentials

Stronger direction, policy and framework of controls or measures for the more forward thinking organisation.

Credentials - Testimonials.

The nature of our work mitigates against testimonials - largely as we make six or seven figure savings for an organisation, remove it from a regulator’s list or ‘compliance fine’ situation, or establish a stronger direction, policy and framework of controls or measures for the more forward thinking organisations.


Riskskill has worked with many organisations in many sectors and countries. Most assignments are sensitive given the nature of the work as the projects generally identify and drive forward new strategic and operational direction. 

Our team works globally, Our people work with regulators in many industries and industry bodies and agencies, with acquisition targets and hunters including with the card schemes - e.g. MasterCard and Visa, local card and ATM schemes, insurers, vendors, merchants and lawyers.


Our experts manage all varieties of complexities and evolve strong and effective solutions, systems, practices and policies as required; that are valued by our clients worldwide.
