Compliance

The interests of our customers and the integrity of the market are key to what we do, and we take our obligations very seriously. We are stringently regulated by the industry governing body, the Financial Conduct Authority, and through our parent organisation Succession Group, have a team of compliance experts on hand at al times. Through these services, our business and the advice we give is regularly audited, to ensure that our regulatory responsibilities are always met.

For our clients, this means that we provide the very best advice, accurately and transparently, made independently from the whole of the market. This reduces our business risk and ensures our reliability, impartiality and expertise.

We offer our clients financial protection from malpractice through the FCA's processes and appropriate professional indemnity insurances.
