Throughout that time GRC has guided us through the changing compliance landscape of the financial planning industry and has continually provided the support, diligence, and responsiveness our business needs. We cannot thank Jacqui and the team enough for being a part of our business evolution and ensuring we are always on the front foot when it comes to regulatory and legislative change in our industry.”

“The Katana Team has received expert advice from GRC Essentials since 2014. We have always found the service to be of the highest quality and the information and advice of the highest standard.

From the outset, we have had a genuine sense that Jacqui and the team at GRC actually care about our business.   On a number of occasions, GRC have gone above and beyond what we required or expected.

They have a high level of experience, technical expertise and resourcing, all of which is made accessible by their friendly approach and can do attitude.”

GRC handled our application for an AFSL from start to finish very professionally and kept us up to date throughout the process. Having such a knowledgeable and professional organisation by our side meant we could focus on our core business throughout the process. We have also engaged GRC on an ongoing basis to help us with Compliance which ensures all our procedures and processes are in place and any technical support we need is also readily available. I’d recommend GRC to anyone requiring specialist governance, risk and compliance services.
