Acumen | Nostrum : Advisory Services for Fund Governance and Compliance

The watchwords ‘Acumen | Nostrum’ encapsulate the expertise, insight and provision of business solutions which underpin the reputation of Simon Howard who is the principal of Howard Consulting which is based in Jersey, Channel Islands.

I now operate in a regulatory consulting capacity and also deliver tailored training courses for fund boards and fund services providers."
