Through her work at Linton & Co, Alison now works closely with types of  companies and institutions of all sizes to help them with their compliance needs, such as meeting statutory and regulator obligations, change delivery, project management, GDPR compliance and in-house (or online) regulatory training for staff. 



I want to change something

Do you need to make a change to the way you offer your services or products? 
Wondering what this might mean from a compliance perspective? Whether that’s changing existing FCA permissions, or becoming ICO authorised, altering the terms and conditions for an advertising campaign, or starting to collect new categories of personal data, we’re on hand to guide you through the process.    Contact us today 

I want to do something new

Creating a new product or business model? 

Get things right from the start with Linton & Co’s compliance consultancy services. We can work with you to apply for FCA or ICO authorisation, including helping you put together a Regulatory Business Plan, design new documents, scripts, or frameworks, and compile a set of comprehensive compliance policies and procedures. 

At Linton & Co, we don’t just offer guidance; we provide practical support too. So if you want to do something new, we’ll happily get involved in the details and roll up our sleeves to get the job done. Contact us today 

I’m worried about a compliance issue

Are you worried that your firm is in breach of your compliance responsibilities?  

These areas of compliance are a minefield, especially since legislation is often changing. It’s not uncommon for financial institutions to get things wrong sometimes and breach compliance legislation. 

At Linton & Co, we’re here to help you solve your compliance issues. 
We’ll thoroughly check your compliance infrastructure and make recommendations on how to put right any wrongs. If the worst has happened, and there is an issue to fix, we can guide you through correcting any errors, while liaising with the regulator and communicating with customers. We tailor our service to suit the size of your business and your specific requirements.  Contact us today 

I’d like a compliance health check


Wondering where your company stands on compliance? 
At Linton & Co, we have the skills, knowledge, and experience to carry out a full compliance audit to identify whether there are any gaps in compliance concerning your business processes, procedures, and documentation. 

We also provide ongoing compliance monitoring in the form of consultancy and support for staff members via face-to-face training or e-learning modules. Contact us today 

 My staff needs compliance training

It is important for all companies and institutions to make that your workforce are fully trained and knowledgeable. Linton & Co provides comprehensive training, either as a face-to-face course or via an e-learning module, on regulatory areas. So if you need specific training, especially in the areas of consumer credit or Data Protection, or general compliance and risk training we can help.

Consumer credit compliance training 
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) sets out clear rules and expectations of how companies operating in the financial sector should conduct business with customers. Our training covers the following: 

  • Background to the FCA and its role in the finance industry. 
  • Specific rules that finance firms must adhere to. 
  • How the FCA checks for compliance. 
  • The customer’s right to be treated fairly. 
  • The responsibilities of key team members and how they can make compliance a part of their day-to-day job. 
  • The consequences of money laundering and other financial crime aspects. 

GDPR compliance training 
All companies that collect, store, and use personal data must adhere to the GDPR legislation that came into force in May 2018, to avoid hefty fines. Any members of staff that deal with personal data need to know their responsibilities as either a Data Controller or Data Processor. This training includes: 

  • An overview of the GDPR, including the principles of this legislation and what the lawful bases are for processing data. 
  • What constitutes personal data and understanding what “sensitive data” is. 
  • The data rights of the individual (customer). 
  • The obligations of both the Data Controller and Data Processor. 
  • How to keep personal data secure. 
  • How the ICO monitors GDPR compliancy. 
  • What to do if there’s a data breach.
