We're dedicated to helping financial services companies grow in a compliant way.









Our People

We are a firm of compliance experts. We specialise in the financial services sector. Specifically we deal with payments, e-money, crypto, challenger banks and FX brokers. We know the FCA and PRA because we are ex-regulators. We know what banks want and how banks works because we are ex-bankers.

We know the resource struggles faced by compliance teams because we work with them every day. We know the challenges faced by entrepreneurs because we founded our own business that we grew from our own hard work. Together we are fscom.

Our Story

In 2011, with growing reputations and experience in the compliance sector, Jamie Cooke and Philip Creed had a vision.

They knew financial services compliance could be better, and that by working together, focusing on becoming deep domain experts and putting clients’ needs first, they could offer a service unrivalled by larger consulting practices.

As a result, we have grown from a two-man operation to a team of 25 experts who are renowned for our professional, personable and trusted service.

Our senior management team has in-depth industry knowledge from the frontline. Our experience is real – we’ve run businesses, led compliance teams, worked in banks and worked for the FCA – and we take pride in staying up to date with the latest in all things regulatory.

We're dedicated to helping financial services companies grow in a compliant way.
