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.



At Signature, our goal is simple – to provide the best regulatory and business support to large IFA, discretionary and wealth management firms. We achieve this through our client centric consultancy approach that starts with getting to know our clients and their business. Through this unique approach we are ideally positioned to design a personalised consultancy solution that assists with the design, documentation and implementation of a complaint and efficient discretionary investment process.
