Financial compliance specialists, B-Compliant, are rounding off an achievement-packed year with another award shortlisting.
The Manchester-based firm is in the running for the Soonicorn Award at the inaugural SeedLegals Startup Awards, which will be held at Battersea Arts Centre, London in February.
A ‘Soonicorn’ is defined as a startup with strong growth, traction and promising strategies to become the next industry disruptor. B-Compliant has earned its place in this category after demonstrating rising demand for its hands-on, tailored compliance support.
This latest shortlisting ends a successful year for B-Compliant, during which it has won accolades with the Federation of Small Businesses and the International Compliance Association, as well as making the finals of the Money Marketing and Professional Adviser awards.
B-Compliant director, Vicky Pearce, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be chosen to participate in this national celebration of entrepreneurship. It has topped off a phenomenal year for us, in which our achievements have been recognised by both the financial and wider business communities. We have every confidence that we can build on our success, as the regulatory burden increases on FCA-registered businesses and more small firms look to external advisers for support.”
The Startup Awards have been launched to celebrate the contribution founders and investors make to innovation and economic growth in the UK and globally. They are being run by SeedLegals, a UK platform for raising investment and negotiating the legalities of a funding round.
B-Compliant specialises in compliance for FCA regulated businesses, including financial and mortgage advisers, wealth, fund and discretionary investment managers, private equity firms and insurance brokers.
