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.

Apricity Compliance


Apricity is the new kid on the compliance block! Quite simply, we offer support to help advisers and planners and their firms be compliant in as simple a manner as possible.

Having been created after listening to advisers frustrated with their existing compliance support (insight from our sister company, outsourced paraplanning company Para-Sols), we understand first-hand that legislation and FCA guidance can be difficult to navigate. And so, Apricity was designed to be something truly unique, to support directly authorised firms who want to focus their time on giving amazing advice to their clients.

Our two missions are...
1. To help you set up your business so that all future output is naturally compliant; and
2. To make your compliance experience positive, helpful, even enjoyable!

It's a big ask. It means completely changing the face of ‘compliance' as we now know it, but we think we're the right people for the job.
