The challenges being posed today within the Regulatory Change space are becoming increasingly significant and finding the right resources to deliver these programs of work is becoming decidedly more difficult.

Rate cards and preferred supplier lists, which were designed for generic change type resources, are frequently being used to attempt to provide very specialist subject matter experts with in-depth knowledge of regulatory programs and their associated issues.

Opportunities prevail for consultancies to maximize short-term revenues and margins. At SOHO, we want to lock down our interests and focus on becoming a strategically aligned partner with our main customers.

We believe we are better served in providing a larger pool of resources to fewer clients. We would like to build a strategic relationship with our customers to support their Regulatory Change programs globally.
