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.

Paradigm Consulting

Since our inception in 2007, Paradigm’s absolute focus has been to champion the adviser community. Everything we do is designed to put you in control and to make your business a total success. The foundation for this is in ensuring your business is built on a solid compliance platform and our range of regulatory support propositions helps you to do just this. Through your personally tailored support package and via true bespoke delivery, our team of experienced consultants will work alongside you, helping you to fully understand and manage the risks to your business.

We pride ourselves on the close working relationships we develop with the firms we support. We listen, we question, we provide solutions. We are also proud to offer all of our services on a flat fee basis.

In addition, for those times when you may need to just focus on a particular area of compliance, conduct a review of a new area of advice or are simply looking for a sounding board to help point you in the right direction, we can also provide ad-hoc consultancy support on request.

Within Paradigm you can also access our multi-award winning mortgage club and protection proposition, as well as gain free, initial access to our CPD Academy.

We also work with carefully selected strategic partners to help add further value and opportunity for you, using our collective strength to make products and technology available to you at advantageous commercial rates.
