We Are JJC

Our business is founded on our core values and our aspiration to operate at the highest levels within a culture that is nurturing towards our people, our clients and our surroundings.

Our Story

Our Story

In January 2017, we set out to create a business that achieved three things:

 

  1. Build a digital solution that does to AML and regulatory policy/procedure management and execution, what music streaming services did to CDs
     

  2. Provide our clients with the benefit of our combined experiences of having successfully navigated regulatory and AML transformation from the Patriot Act, through the Financial Crisis, to today’s virtual assets regulatory challenges
     

  3. Create a virtuous home for experienced professionals combined with sponsoring and nurturing young talent through our LoFT programme

Cerebro Digital Policy & Procedures for a Leading Bank

Cerebro was used to digitise and reimagine this bank’s policies and procedures into a codified database of ‘policy and rules as code’.  This resulted in:

 

  1. Less onerous requirements being applied to clients and faster time to market
     

  2. Improved compliance through digital lineage back to regulations and policies
     

  3. AML requirements are easier to understand and less costly to implement in systems like Fenergo CLM
     

  4. Opportunities for more efficient processing and quality throughout
     

  5. Authoring of new policy and requirements digitally directly in Cerebro reusing our libraries of industry best practices.

Nurturing Young Talent


Since we launched in 2017, we are proud to have sponsored over 15 students through our LoFT program. 

 

This provides talented University students with the opportunity to be a meaningful part of our business and earn flexibly whilst at university.  

 

All of our LoFT graduates have gone on to meaningful roles, at JJC or elsewhere.

 

LoFT has fast-tracked the careers of a growing number of young professionals and provided a flexible way for our people to pay their own way through university.

Trusted Partner and Advisor for Global CLM Implementation

Initially brought onboard to provide assurance to the selection of an AML system vendor, JJC was able to make an immediate contribution to the design workshops from a standing start by drawing on our extensive product experience. 

 

We were asked to stay on to provide advice, governance and co-design the operating model, key journeys, migration strategy and assure the policy and solution architecture.

 

The programme went live in 6 months as planned and we were asked to provide even broader support to the next phase of work.
