The Virtual Adviser

In today's busy word, operating in a traditional manner isn't always possible or practical and sometimes, as we are finding at the moment, circumstances mean you may need to adapt at speed.

Running an advisory business today is a little different from how it used to be. Technology, the fast pace in which we live our lives, the ever-changing dynamics of today’s client and, indeed, the world in which we operate, all mean that we need to adapt and change the way in which we operate.


Whilst none of this is new, it has been made all the more apparent with the current issues surrounding the coronavirus and the restrictions being enforced on travel, events and general interaction.

At Compliance First, we are committed to supporting firms fully, and ensuring that they are able to run a compliant and profitable business and to provide the support and service their clients need, whatever the circumstances - and as our environment evolves, so do we.

We have invested many £millions in fintech and a state-of-the-art digital services platform that enable us to provide our Members with the software, the support, the knowledge and essential learning and skills that they need now and in the future.


How are we helping firms in this digital age?

Our Clients have access to a highly skilled and competent team of compliance consultants, who, when required, will use state of the art digital tools to continue to provide firms with bespoke, relevant and vital support, while extending our service to include practical solutions for firms to adapt to remote working and client servicing.

The support and enhancement of our fintech platform continues and is accelerating, putting market-leading state of the art technology at firms’ fingertips, whilst providing access to our fantastic team for support and training.

Our comprehensive learning and development programme, which sees over 400 events run each year, has grown to include a number of leading virtual events, non-more so than our Advice Show, which last week was hosted by 5 Live’s Rachel Burden, and tackled a number of key issues affecting advisers today – see

We appreciate that your clients will now, possibly more than ever, need your reassurance and expertise to cope with enormous disruption and the most difficult decisions. Compliance First are here to support firms today and long into the future, so if you need to talk, are looking for some guidance or think you may benefit from our service, then please get in touch. 

We are now running virtual meetings and would be happy to set one up to suit you.


"Compliance First have been absolutely fantastic since our company joined. Your staff have been very professional and friendly, you have transformed our company's processes and procedures virtually overnight. Without your assistance, I have no doubt we would not have been in a position to successfully negotiate our recent FCA visit. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Compliance First. We will not hesitate to recommend you to other firms."
