RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Since 2008, Oyster Consulting has grown into an international presence supporting many of the biggest names in finance. Oyster continues its growth by hiring Harriet Britt, former deputy director of compliance at Roberson Stevens and chief compliance officer at THINKEQUITY.
In her new Senior Consultant role, Britt will help hedge funds, broker dealers and investment advisors navigate the complex regulatory path from initial registration to industry prominence — with a focus on supporting West Coast firms. She will also serve as Chief Compliance Officer for firms that recognize the value of outsourced, expert support.
“Harriet is a talented expert who broadens our firm’s capabilities and reach,” says Patrick M. Dennis, founding principal and managing director of Oyster Consulting. “We’re excited to share her hedge fund and investment advisor expertise with new clients on the West Coast and across the United States.”
No matter their needs, goals or challenges, clients will benefit from Britt’s commitment to finding compliant solutions. Rather than regulations limiting firms, Britt creates ways for organizations to achieve their aspirations while remaining compliant and doing the best possible job for their clients. With more than 20 years of financial industry experience, she deeply understands the obstacles firms face when working to balance business goals, regulatory changes and market fluctuations.
“I joined Oyster because, unlike other consulting companies, their experts have worked in-house at prominent financial firms, so they understand the business as well as they do the regulations,” says Britt. “We’re all specialists, but our work is grounded in real-world experience and perspectives that I look forward to sharing with a wider audience.”
Oyster Consulting supports financial services firms with audit, regulatory, compliance, financial, strategic management, operations, trading and technology consulting services while creating simplicity in a complex environment. Oyster’s team of consultants brings over six centuries of combined experience as senior executives, program managers, developers, department managers, business analysts and subject matter experts. Oyster’s practical solutions help broker/dealers, investment advisors, hedge funds, mutual funds, ETFs, high frequency trading firms, private equity firms and exchanges to protect and grow their businesses.
