What is a Financial Probity Check?

A financial probity check investigates the financial background of a candidate to assess whether they meet the regulatory requirements of working in certain industries, e.g. financial services, banking and insurance. These industries involve many compliance regulations that must be met to ensure the highest standards of professionalism and competence in order to protect the general public.

Our financial probity checks investigate the prior financial history and activities of individuals via publicly available financial records and court/legal records. We are also able to check whether your candidate is registered on or has previously been disqualified from the relevant regulator’s register and whether they hold the appropriate licence associated with the position. This comprehensive check verifies whether the candidate is suitable for the role you are hiring for, and is particularly relevant for roles in the financial services industry, e.g. auditors, liquidators, authorised representatives and financial planners.

Working with and having an understanding of the industry bodies in each nation, we provide a range of financial probity and regulatory checks to ensure your ongoing compliance with industry regulations


Why conduct Financial Probity Checks?

There are many benefits of conducting Financial Probity Checks:

  • Meet your compliance requirements by conducting thorough checks on your candidates to ensure they meet the regulatory requirements of your industry. This will protect you from any penalties or fines that would apply if employees are found to have breached the regulations or are practising without a license.
  • Minimise your company’s financial and people risk by obtaining a comprehensive overview of the prospective candidate.
  • Protect yourself from fraudulent and disreputable candidates or companies by conducting due diligence on all potential candidates.

Ensure the reputation of your business is upheld by hiring candidates that have financial integrity and display professionalism.

  • Ongoing screening to meet your compliance requirements

How does Sterling RISQ conduct Financial Probity Checks?

We conduct our financial probity checks by first discussing your objectives and needs with you, e.g. the regulatory frameworks for your industry, the role and responsibilities attached to the role. We then tailor a package to fit your needs by configuring our financial probity checks to reflect your company’s regulatory requirements, standards, and employment policies.

We conduct our comprehensive financial probity checks via publicly available registers and court/legal records to quickly, accurately and objectively identify any relevant financial or regulatory issues based on your specific objectives and needs.
