Outsourced Compliance Functions

Many businesses do not have a dedicated compliance function, instead compliance becomes an additional responsibility for a member of management. Keeping up with the ever-changing regulations and doing what’s needed to be compliant can be a difficult, particularly when balancing the other responsibilities of running a business.

For firms like this, CCAS have a solution. You can outsource all or part of your compliance function to us. Either those bits that are more technical, where you need an expert to explain what’s needed, or for more time-consuming jobs such as training and monitoring.

Your business will be overseen by one of our experienced compliance specialists. They will be dedicated to you, getting to know your business inside out and developing a close trusting relationship with you. Our experts know how to translate complex regulations into day-to-day actions that can be easily followed, ensuring you of the highest standards and good outcomes for your customers.
