CCL Co-Comply was founded in order to provide financial firms with integrated solutions to help them manage and implement the continual onslaught of regulation. The company was born out of two organisations:


An international regulatory consultancy providing clients with advisory and training services from offices in London, the Middle East and India.

CCL Governance, Risk, Compliance, Logo


A specialist UK software provider with senior technicians that have worked for global compliance departments helping them to automate their internal compliance framework.
