MAKING COMPLIANCE WORK
The UK's Leading Financial Services Regulatory Compliance & FCA Authorisation Consultancy
Identify Areas Where You’re Are Doing Well, Not So Well & Areas That Need Improvement.
Too many regulatory compliance consultancies provide a range of stock or off the shelf services, but we are leading FCA compliance & authorisation consultants and provide bespoke services at a high standard. FCA Authorisation, Registration or Licencing and variation of permissions are often and can be a very involved process requiring you to know not only your business, but also how your business works and the risk areas it is likely to be impacted by. Go Here For Details.
Compliance Benchmark Audit & Projects
We assess, compare, test, evaluate and score your compliance systems and controls against best practice and the latest regulations. We check your Governance from Terms of Business to Compliance Manual, AML/KYC through to Outsourcing polices. Robust and coherent governance is fundamental to any successful, compliant and profitable financial services company. We also conduct FCA compliant regulated complaints assessment and complaint management.
We have an impressive array of training courses available covering a number of subjects and implementations (such as SMCR) and will amend/alter and update each course to be specific for you. These elements (including any changes) have to be recorded, monitored and stored under some new regulations. There is also the recognised need and increased benefits for face-to-face training over and above any online-refresher.
ANNUAL COMPLIANCE MONITORING PLAN
If Strategy, Risk, Governance & Compliance are your goals, we can offer exceptional experience based ideas for you.

We work on the simple premise of “Improving our client’s condition “, which to us means that you have to have value over and above the cost involved. Cost should never be confused with price as there is a distinct difference. Price is the amount of money involved in a transaction. Cost is the complete, long term benefits (or lack of them) plus the initial upheaval and management time involved in the implementation and execution of the project.
We do not have a menu or tariff of charges as we operate on a bespoke and personalised service. We will assess the work involved for any project or exercise and provide a price that is fixed for the project achieving it’s outcomes. All outcomes need to be defined in advance and be measurable. If it takes us 6 weeks, or six months, we don’t ask for any additional money*. Equally, if we achieve the outcomes before you initially expect, we do not provide refunds. If your accounts department needs a per diem cost, we can assist them in understanding the benefits of a fixed price contract.
We have been operating since the year 2000 and have helped many firms from one-man bands through to banks to start up and set up with FCA Approval, reviewed countless policies and procedures (AML, CFA, CofI, TCF etc) as well as created Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) Frameworks; some with major UK companies.
