IFA Consultancy Limited

IFA Consultancy Ltd was formed in 2004 to provide compliance consultancy services to Independent Financial Advisers. Although this is our specialism (representing 70% of our work) we also provide compliance support for mortgage brokers and firms that sell insurance. We have also assisted firms whose main business is not financial services such as finance brokers and motor traders. We therefore have a wide range of experience in the retail small firms sector. IFA Consultancy provide support ranging from FCA applications to ongoing compliance support services.
