Handel en ondernemerschap zit in onze genen

Ontwikkelen, maken, financieren en vervoeren. In deze cirkel van handel en ondernemerschap voelt Philip Sidney zich thuis. Wij helpen u om zaken te doen over de hele wereld. Regels worden nageleefd, maar kansen worden niet gemist. Klinkt eenvoudig. Maar in een complexe wereld van veranderende wet- en regelgeving is eenvoud precies wat u nodig heeft.

We kennen de spelregels door en door

Door onze jarenlange ervaring in de juridische en financiële wereld kennen wij de spelregels van de internationale zakenwereld door en door. Dat inzicht delen we graag met u. We helpen u om de juiste route uit te stippelen en om uw strategie te bepalen. Integriteit, diplomatie en vertrouwen zijn hierbij de sleutelwoorden.

En we maken onszelf graag overbodig

We verdiepen ons in uw business en in de regels en wetten waar u mee te maken heeft. Inzoomen, uitzoomen en verbinden. We maken een compliance structuur die begrijpelijk is voor iedereen. Zo gaat u zelf zien hoe u het maximale uit wet- en regelgeving kunt halen. Bij Philip Sidney maken we onszelf namelijk graag overbodig. Als het goed is ziet u ons niet meer terug.

Philip Sidney en de kunst van de acceleratie

Regelgeving beperkt, maar bied tegelijkertijd kansen. Zie het als de rem van uw auto. Die heeft u nodig om harder te kunnen rijden en verantwoord risico’s te kunnen nemen. Tenminste, zo zien wij dat. U wilt grip krijgen op uw compliance vraagstukken. Risico’s beheersen en waar mogelijk ruimte benutten. Tot niets u nog in de weg staat om vooruit te kunnen. Samen met uw klanten. In dit filmpje lichten we dat graag even toe. 

Philip Sidney tijdens de GTR Trade Finance Week 2014 (Singapore)

In verschillende sectoren is zowel de druk van wet- en regelgeving als het aantal toezichthouders toegenomen. Philip Sidney treedt graag met de wetgever en toezichthouders in discussie over de vraag hoe ondernemingen, zonder nieuwe sectorwetgeving, kunnen worden gestimuleerd om ander gedrag te vertonen. Voor de onderneming ligt de uitdaging er dan in om het in haar gestelde vertrouwen waar te maken. Philip Sidney ondersteunt daarbij. We geven u een ‘license to operate’. Philip Sidney partner Gert Demmink vertelt tijdens de GTR Trade Finance Week 2014 in Singapore meer over financing tradeprocedures & wetgeving, gate keeping en de kosten van compliance
