A new window into compliance

By Rob Lankey, CEO

The newly branded NACFB Compliance Services is perhaps the most visible sign of how strongly we are focused on regulation. There is lots of less visible activity happening as well!

You’ll have noticed that the nacfb.org website is now completely revised and open for business. Just three weeks after the full launch of the new site, we decided it had been such a success that we launched another one: our Compliance Services site.

Over the past year, Member firms have been successfully developing a compliance culture into their businesses as familiarity with the FCA regime of regulation embeds itself across the commercial finance and credit broking sector. We’ve responded to the demands of our Members and developed an in-house compliance division, specifically geared to supporting the commercial finance brokers and Patrons of the Association.

Take a look at nacfbcompliance.co.uk and you’ll see all the new services we offer. In some ways this is a new direction the NACFB is taking because we’re starting to sell the products we’ve worked on to non-members. That’s a first for the Association. But in another sense, it is simply a continuation of what we have been doing for 25 years… raising standards and demonstrating what best practice looks like.

Our third site – findSMEfinance.co.uk – continues to attract £1min leads every day.

The events season is also in full swing right now, with compliance workshops on 25th and 26th April, roadshows on 23-26th May and the Commercial Finance Expo on 21st June.

I hope you will join us wherever you can.
