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.

SICSIC Advisory

Sicsic Advisory is a London based boutique consultancy, focusing on financial services risk and regulation.

We assist Boards and Senior Management to deliver sustainable business models. We focus on 3 outcomes:

  • Financial soundness, the cornerstone of our offering, covering most of prudential matters that financial institutions face.
  • Operational resilience, the new frontier to manage cyber, technology and business process risks
  • Culture and conduct, the main drivers of good customer outcomes and sustainable business success.

Our team has a unique combination of expertise gained through direct industry experience, consulting roles and regulatory supervision leadership role in the UK insurance market.

We have developed a specific offering focusing on insurance broking, with a vast experience into M&A activities covering seller and buyer services.

Sicsic Advisory was founded in 2019 by Michael Sicsic, a senior executive in the field of risk and regulation and former head of supervision for the UK general insurance retail sector at the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
