HLPartnership (HLP) has added to its compliance team with the appointment of Trisha Hanratty (pictured) as head of supervision, reporting directly to compliance director Kay Leslie.
Hanratty has over seven years of senior level compliance experience leading field compliance supervision teams in the intermediary mortgage and insurance arena, predominantly with networks and distribution businesses.
Leslie said: “Trisha and I worked closely together in the past and so I had the experience of seeing the high quality of her work and strong understanding of intermediary distribution.
“With her hands on experience developed over a number of years, she understands the value that the compliance regime brings to the sales process to ensure that the end result is a good customer outcome.
“We understand that the regulatory framework is constantly evolving and it’s important that network members fully understand and appreciate HLP’s compliance stance.
“Trisha is a firm believer in making sure that compliance is not just something that is imposed from a distance and that is why she is so committed to working directly with members, wherever they operate.”
Hanratty added: “ I am delighted to be joining HLP as head of supervision. Field supervision, working directly with network members to deliver good customer outcomes, has always been my professional passion.
“My aim, working closely with Kay and the rest of the team, will be to ensure that we keep firms, individual advisers and customers as safe as possible, ensuring outcomes are always at the forefront of everything we do.”
