Uniqueness of our company
  CDL (our company) is professionals equipped with comprehensive working experiences, knowledge and skills to resolve every major aspect of compliance & AML/ATF work in financial business .We are not compliance experts dedicated in a particular area of compliance.

   Professionals havew multiple cross-cutting expertise and experiences in addition to specialized knowledge and experience.
CDL advises not only on compliance knowledge but also on compliance concepts of how to create your own corporate culture of compliance.
  Compliance needs to  change from inspection-oriented to design-oriented compliance.
  The time has been over when  FSA provides guidelines and manuals  so as you can follow and establish your compliance.
  FSA's inspection stance has also changed dramatically from "monitoring" to "dialogue" base.
   Top management (financial instruments business operators themselves) is required newly and voluntarily to design their own compliance systems and culture based on their own creative efforts.
  Compliance will need to change fromsomething to be established to something to be designed.
