TRADE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP are IN OUR GENES
Development, manufacturing, finance and transport. These are the trade and business sectors Philip Sidney knows like the back of its hand. We help you do business all over the world. Regulations are observed, but we also make sure opportunities are not missed. Sounds simple? In a complex world of ever-changing legislation and regulations, simplicity is just what you need!
WE KNOW THE RULES OF THE GAME INSIDE OUT
Thanks to our years of experience in the legal and financial world, we know the rules of the international business world inside out. And we are keen to share this insight with you. We help you plot the right course and define your strategy. With integrity, diplomacy and trust being the key words here.
AND WE LIKE TO MAKE OURSELVES REDUNDANT
We immerse ourselves in your business and in the regulations and legislation that apply to you. Zooming in, zooming out and making connections. We create a compliance structure which is clear to everyone, allowing you to see for yourself how you can make legislation and regulations work to the best of your advantage. Because at Philip Sidney, we like to make ourselves redundant. Once everything goes well, we disappear into the background.
Philip Sidney and the art of acceleration
Regulations may be restrictive, but they also offer opportunities. They are much like the brakes on your car, essential if you want to be able to drive faster and take calculated risks. At least, that is how we see things. You want to get a grip on your compliance issues. Manage risks and, where possible, take advantage of any leeway you may have. Until nothing is standing in your way to move ahead. Together with your customers. In this clip , we explain this in a bit more detail.
PHILIP SIDNEY at the GTR asia TRADE FINANCE WEEK 2014 (SINGAPORE)
Several sectors have seen an increase in both legislative and regulatory pressure and the number of regulators. Philip Sidney is keen to enter into discussion with legislators and regulators on how to encourage companies, without introducing new sector legislation, to change their behaviour. For companies, the challenge then is to live up to the trust placed in them. Philip Sidney supports you in this endeavour. We give you a ‘licence to operate’. At the GTR Asia Trade Finance Week 2014, Philip Sidney partner Gert Demmink talked in detail about financing trade, procedures & legislation, gate keeping and the cost of compliance.
