Welcome To IDW Associates Ltd

IDW Associates Ltd was established in early 2012 to provide specialist Risk Management advice and expert support to organisations involved primarily in Retail and SME banking. Founded by Ian Wilson a former Chief Risk Officer and Managing Director with major UK banking organisations, IDW Associates also brings together a small team of experienced and talented risk practitioners who can provide specialist skills and expertise to organisations both large and small. In our first year we have worked with a diverse range of organisations including a major UK banking organisation, a small but well established Credit Union and a young ambitious SME internet start-up business.


All our Associates are experienced senior risk professionals who have a wealth of subject matter expertise together with a practical, delivery focused approach. All our Associates also have significant experience working in senior line management roles in well established organisations before moving into consultancy.



Within the team we have deep expertise in three of the main risk disciplines; Credit, Regulatory and Operational Risk. We can support your business with everything from a short, focused assurance assignment, through to supporting major transformation projects and Board Risk Frameworks, Risk Appetite and Reporting.



There is no such thing as a typical project or assignment. We can tailor our support according to your organisations specific requirements. Our Associates have undertaken engagements ranging from the facilitation of one day workshops to long term interim management roles.
