Best in class content

The Unicorn collection includes more than 200 learning titles aimed at all financial service sectors. All compliance courses are designed to provide a clear overview of the relevant regulatory themes and include specific role-related case studies bringing the content to life and covering off a specific training requirement under the regulation.

SMR & Certification Regime Financial crime

General compliance Culture & behaviour

Senior Managers Regime Tool

Our powerful SMR tool enables you to assign and review existing Senior Management Function (SMF) approvals, identify changes and then allocate each SMF with a Statement of Responsibilities in just a few clicks.The tool can also assist you with developing a Responsibility Map with easy editing and full audit and tracking functionality.

Certification Regime Tool

Our solution enables the identification and management of CR roles, including the definition of criteria that must be met to achieve certification. Allocation and tracking is coupled with robust reporting for audit purposes.

Diagnostic & Assessment Tool

Diagnostic assessments can identify individual knowledge gaps at the outset. The LMS can then automatically assign only the learning activities your employees need. Endpoint assessments enable the demonstration of understanding and competency.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

The Unicorn CPD tool enables multiple schemes for all professionals in your organisation. Each piece of learning content has a CPD value – when the activity is completed, that value is added to the user’s record. A dashboard shows each learner’s progress against the scheme, and lists completed activities which will qualify for CPD.

Training and Compliance (T&C)

An integrated T&C feature helps firms comply with the FCA’s or a firm-specific regime, using a series of online forms underpinned by preset workflows to manage and evidence both competency and performance.

Reporting tools

Quickly highlight knowledge gaps or areas of non-compliance by using the integrated report generator to identify how staff are performing against their training requirements, with the ability to drill down to an individual level to see where action is needed.

Our end-to-end solution supports and empowers a firm to contribute to the integrity of a successful financial system. Partner with Unicorn to drive cultural change within your firm.
