Regulatory and compliance expertise
Pragmatic advice from people you can trust
At Cyan, we draw upon our extensive experience as former regulators and senior industry professionals to help businesses meet legal and regulatory demands. We pride ourselves on the provision of an expert service at competitive rates; and we measure our success through the feedback we receive and the long-term relationships we have established with our clients.
We are trusted advisers to a wide range of businesses including international wealth management firms, some of Jersey’s largest fund service providers, private equity houses and one of the Island’s first e-gaming operators. We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients, acting always in their best interests and providing authoritative support which clients can rely on.
“We work hard to provide the best possible service, working alongside our clients to understand their precise requirements and provide pragmatic authoritative solutions. We will ‘roll up our sleeves’ to help and respond with urgency when the situation requires it.”
Our team of experts
Chris Cooke and Nicola Crowell established Cyan in November 2014 with the aim of applying their technical expertise and experience as former regulators to help businesses meet the challenges of the ever-changing legal and regulatory regime.
The firm now benefits greatly from the additional insight provided by Philip Baker, Ruth Moss and Helen Holmes. In additional to our permanent staff, we are very fortunate to be able to call upon the assistance of other professionals who we are able to engage as consultants for specific assignments to further widen the expertise available and provide additional resource.
What our clients say
