CCL joins DIFC as specialist compliance consultant

DUBAI— CCL Compliance Consultants (CCL) yesterday became the first specialist compliance firm authorised to operate from the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). CCL will focus on supporting firms applying for authorised status with the DFSA and help regionally-based firms operate in a market with world standard laws and regulations.

Ralph Lindeyer, Chairman, CCL, says the requirements set by the DFSA, a signatory to the International Organisation of Securities Commissions, are complex and demanding. Many firms need independent expert advice in order to meet the continuing high standards demanded by the regulator.

As the first professional compliance firm to be established in the UK market, CCL brings considerable experience in this specialist field together with an intimate understanding of the requirements for operating in a world class regulatory environment.

Established in 1988, CCL services on a current basis some 300 regulated firms and has obtained authorisation for more than 400 firms in the UK. CCL provides professional practitioner advice to a wide range of financial services clients, advising on authorisation and general compliance to anti-money laundering and risk management.
