Covid 19 – CASS Support Update
During this difficult period, we would be happy to provide, free of charge, answers to any specific technical questions on CASS that you may struggle to answer if key people are out of action. Please either get in contact through our contacts page or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best, based on our extensive knowledge of CASS and any information you provide.
The same contact details should be used if you would like to discuss any additional support we could provide, whether covering tasks on an interim basis or providing remotely based training.
Introduction to our CASS Support
Walbrook Partners’ subject matter experts have been working with a wide range of firms over the past few years, helping them to achieve compliance with the CASS rules. We engage in industry workshops and discussions under Chatham House rules, to discuss and share our views on the latest developments and best practice in the area of CASS compliance.
If you’d like a no obligation, confidential briefing on the latest developments and themes arising in the area of CASS compliance, please get in touch via our Contact Page. We’d be happy to share what we know and explore any areas of concern you might have.
We are also well regarded as providers of CASS training, receiving very positive reviews from attendees. We specialise in translating the rules into real life examples which are relevant to your business and to the attendees. For more information on this, please refer to our CASS Training page.

CASS Expertise On Call
For many firms, it is hard to justify hiring a permanent in-house expert on the ramifications and requirements of CASS. However the requirements can be complex and the financial and reputational cost of getting it wrong is high. We offer an economically priced on-call facility, enabling clients to draw on our expertise as and when needed for ad-hoc requirements, for a nominal monthly fee.
If you’d like to talk to us about whether such a facility would suit your needs, we’d be glad to discuss your needs in confidence.
Resolution Pack Testing
We provide client with annual testing of their Resolution Packs, to provide assurance that these are compliant and fit for purpose. The testing looks at the scope and clarity of the content and can provide the CF10a with the assurance required before the annual Board report on this requirement.
We have been helping a number of firms, who have been struggling with the collection of data and completion of these returns. We’d be happy to support you in the development of streamlined processes and the clarification of the requirements.
