I first met Molly in December 2014 and realised that not alone did I need the services of a Compliance Professional but one who understood how our business model functioned and put in place the required procedures.
Molly is an excellent compliance professional who has provided me with direction and clarity in relation to the numerous strands of legislation that impact on my business and my clients.
I found Molly to be extremely supportive and knowledgeable in helping me with the renewal process of our mortgage authorisations and I would heartily recommend her. As a result we will be engaging this firm going forward to assist us with compliance etc.
