Association of Professional Compliance Consultants

The body for compliance consultants who advise firms regulated in the UK.

The APCC is active in enhancing the professional standards of compliance consultants and is recognised as a trade body by the FCA and other regulators. This provides our members with significant benefits in terms of direct access to the Regulators as well as business leads.  The APCC often works in conjunction with the FCA to pilot or test new initiatives, and we also provide with valuable feedback on specific subjects as requested by them.

Firwood Consulting Limited

Formed in 2020 as an intermediary-focused service, Firwood Consulting provide professional compliance support services to mortgage and insurance brokers. The directors and lead consultant have many years’ experience in the specialist fields of mortgages, protection and general insurance. We believe there is a need for a bespoke people-friendly approach to compliance, as opposed to friction between growth and regulatory agendas. This means understanding the regulated firm’s growth plans, the culture, and the clientele, before satisfying that demand by means of our systems for meeting the varied needs of the Mortgage and Insurance Broker. Our policy of offering a bespoke service and practical approach to compliance matters means we are well placed to help you implement systems and controls appropriate to your own individual operation, whilst ensuring they are fully understood. Please contact us directly if you have an enquiry.
