Governance & Compliance

At the heart of our service offering to clients is our understanding and commitment to our service to clients.

With this in mind, we believe that excellence in corporate governance, regulatory compliance and delivery provides palpable business benefits to ourselves and to our development partners.

Across the organisation, we seek for our development partners to have confidence in our asset management and decision-making by ensuring that governance and internal compliance systems are open, effective and comprehensive.  Thorough documentation and review are vital elements in maintaining this confidence.

Risk Management


Efficient and effective risk management is vital in ensuring the success of any development or asset management enterprise and should be central to the thoughts and actions of the organisation.   A risk management system must include standards, processes, review mechanisms and an appropriate corporate culture to ensure that standards are met and exceeded.

At CAP, risk management is integral in the planning of all client mandates and asset management structures.  Risk management systems are tailored for each project, communicated regularly to those involved and periodically reviewed for ongoing effectiveness and relevance.
