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.

ESG Accord Ltd

Hello. We are ESG Accord. We work with firms at the forefront of ESG & Sustainable advice.

We seek to address the ESG & Sustainable compliance knowledge gap in Advice Firms and across the fund industry which is hindering transparency, market participation and ultimately best practice outcomes within Firms.

We provide Advice Firms with a flexible packaged ESG & Sustainable compliance framework to deliver advice, research and outcomes up to current PROD requirements (and be responsive to incoming regulatory changes). Our framework spans client preferences across ALL funds – the whole investment space – as a spectrum.

In addition, we provide ground-breaking ESG & Sustainability Due Diligence. Our MPS ‘deep dive’ Report will make our industry expertise readily available to all Advice Firms deepening their ability to deliver best practice. We plan to expand our deep-dive ESG & Sustainability report range.

Our work has been recognised by the FCA, we are part of DLAG (Disclosure and Labels Advisory Group) to inform the incoming Sustainability Disclosure Regulations. We are the only compliance-based firm representing the perspectives of advisers and retail investors.

Our aim is to make our expertise readily available to all Advice Firms and broader industry participants. Our processes raise PROD market participation as a dialogue conduit between Manufacturer & Distributor. These actions support our ethos for increased transparency & trust.

We do not replace existing Compliance Firms, we can form partnerships. Our framework and expertise is additional and can be integrated so there is not a conflict of interest.

Ultimately ESG Accord enables firms to support mobilising private finance for global good and positive change, we believe this produces good outcomes for people, planet and economics.

 We look forward to working with you.
