Cyan was established in November 2014 by former regulators who wanted to apply their technical expertise and experience to help businesses meet the challenges of the ever-changing legal and regulatory regime.

Since that time, the firm has welcomed senior industry professionals who have brought with them additional insight from their practical experience as Compliance Officers, MLROs and MLCOs.

In 2022, we merged with Altair and are now also able to assist fiduciary service providers in managing their fiduciary duties in the monitoring and governance of assets under their administration.

We are also able to draw upon the expertise of Altair’s professional directors and co-ordinate our work, where appropriate and in the interests of our clients.
