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.

A.C.Culley & Co

A.C.Culley & Co. is a niche consultancy that offers c-suite (ex. SMF16/17 and senior manager) level support to buy and sell side firms, trading venues and technology vendors active (or aspiring to be active) in the following sectors:

  • commodity markets, e.g. base metals, energy, grains, softs and paper;
  • foreign exchange markets, e.g. liquidity provision, forwards, spot and swaps;
  • securities markets, e.g. bonds, CFDs, depositary receipts, spread bets and warrants;
  • payment services, e.g. money transmission, payment initiation and account information; and
  • alternatives, e.g. crypto assets and tokens.

Drawing upon Alexander Culley’s substantial experience of building successful compliance programmes at wholesale and retail financial institutions, A.C.Culley & Co. can assist with a wide range of matters, including those with an international dimension (particularly, EU, Hong Kong, Singapore and UAE).
