About Us

SIFA was established in 1992 to fulfil two distinct functions. The core service provides compliance and business support to financial advisers. From satisfying regulatory obligations and keeping compliant process, to providing marketing support and adviser tools, SIFA has been at the forefront of support service provision for over 25 years.

The second aspect to the SIFA proposition involves the facilitation of professional connections, through the Law Society recognised SIFA Directory of Professional Advisers, to bring about stronger working relationships between financial advisers and solicitors.

Following 25 years of success and expansion, SIFA has grown to support over 160 firms. It is our commitment to providing the highest quality of compliance services alongside relevant business support that has kept, and will keep us, at the forefront of adviser support services.
 

Uniquely positioned

Our unique position enables us to pass on our knowledge of how best to build working relationships with legal professionals. Unlike anyone else in the market, we provide additional support for advisers looking to build professional connections. SIFA Professional facilitates interaction between financial advisers and solicitors via seminars, meetings, marketing initiatives and business procedures, and promoting financial advisers through the Law Society-endorsed SIFA Directory of Professional Advisers.
