"Due to the ever increasing complexities involved with regulatory issues, it is now almost impossible to operate efficiently without the support of an excellent compliance consultancy firm. Thankfully, I have been a member of Compliance First for over a decade and they have provided excellent support services. Not only have they helped Knightsbridge Wealth Management with important compliance issues, they also provide regular professional development events. They have supported my business in so many directions. This include contacts for legal services, professional indemnity insurance, investment services and software support. In conclusion, I can highly recommend Compliance First to any forward and progressive IFA firm seeking support services."
