What clients say
B-Compliant seem to have the balance just right for small financial advisers like us from a support and price point. They offer on-site visits or remote help, both of which are extremely helpful. Vicky and her team offer a no-nonsense approach to compliance where what you see is what you get. Perfect!
B-Compliant has delivered everything that we expected, and then some – even at short notice. I feel that they have our best interests at heart, and I have complete confidence in the guidance they provide. They have a flexible approach and a great work ethic.
What we want from a compliance consultant is threefold: to keep our compliance programme both up to date and (more importantly) effective, to offer solutions and not point out problems, and, yes, to be fairly priced! We get all three from B-Compliant.
It’s early days in our relationship with Vicky and B-Compliant, but my business partners and I have so far been very impressed with the service and technical knowledge provided. For the first time in a long time, we can see compliance in a more positive light, as a tool to improve our business as a whole.
