The IMS Group (IMS), the leading regulation and compliance consultancy, has bolstered its consultancy offering with four new hires.

Dominic Williams, Elisebeth Slater and Michael Strug join as compliance consultants. Saira Farooq joins as a consultant in the dedicated Regulatory Transactions Team.

Dominic has worked in the financial services industry for 15 years, and in compliance roles for the last 13 years, predominantly with asset managers, including most recently five years as the standalone compliance officer at J. Rothschild Capital Management. At IMS, Dominic will provide compliance advice to a range of clients including asset managers, private equity firms and hedge fund managers.

Elisebeth joins after spending two years at the Financial Ombudsman Service as an investment adjudicator. In her new role, she will be responsible for assisting consultants with the implementation and monitoring of client infrastructure.

Michael joins from GFT, a spread betting firm, working mainly with institutional clients and previous to this Michael spent a year at the Financial Ombudsman Service. At IMS, his role includes assisting the consulting team in developing and executing compliance monitoring and supporting IMS clients with all aspects of FSA compliance.

Saira will be managing FSA applications on behalf of a range of start-up firms. She previously worked at City law firm, Barlow Lyde & Gilbert, specialising in professional and commercial disputes in the banking and financial sector.

Michel van Leeuwen, group chief executive IMS, said: "The new consultants bring a wide variety of experience and skills to IMS and will be an important addition to the business. Regulatory challenges for investment firms are becoming increasingly complex and global, and IMS has adapted to accomodate for this, recruiting many skilled individuals to service the needs of our expanding client base over the past twelve months. We expect to continue our organic growth throughout 2012."
