Rudolph van der Veen

Owner, Organic Fitness Group

I have known Mariska van der Veen since her tenure as Compliance officer for my Department.

Her experience assisted the business tremendously as she improved and enhanced various compliance functions in our area.

Treasury and Dealing compliance are extremely complex and we found Mariska to be proficient.

We have been very impressed with her commitment, dedication, flexibility and responsiveness – qualities which helped lead to such a positive outcome.

I would highly recommend Mariska to be a part of your team. She would be an asset to any company and would go above and beyond for her work.

Kumeran Govender

Head of Global Trading and Investments, Bidvest Bank

We appointed Mariska at Elysian as our Compliance and Risk Management consultant in February 2020.

She compiled and submitted our licence application to the The Financial Sector Conduct Authority and obtained approval in just three months.

Apart from extensive experience and a very high level of proficiency in the complex compliance world, she brings a wonderful work ethic that translates into what is an excellent service.

Continuing to work with Mariska gives us that essential peace of mind that is knowing our business remains fully compliant with all applicable legislation.

We highly recommend the services of ECARM.
