Expert Compliance Support

COBRA Network provides expert help and support for all our members’ Compliance needs. Our experienced consultants guide members through the intricacies and demands of FCA regulation.


The FCA demands a coordinated approach to many day-to-day insurance processes and it is vital that these are documented and that workflows and procedures are distributed, understood, and actioned by all employees. Furthermore, brokers are expected to monitor and audit these processes to ensure consistency.

COBRA conducts an initial audit and subsequent regular audits to measure the extent to which the member is meeting FCA expectations.

Where there is a shortfall COBRA provides its members with templates and workflows that can be adapted to their own business and style, ensuring that FCA requirements can be met.


COBRA Network has tried and tested template documents available on a range of compliance issues; these can be copied and amended to suit your business in the knowledge that they comply with FCA regulations.

Broking presentations, Policies, Gap Analysis’s and spreadsheets are among these and will give you an excellent opportunity to review all your insurance-related paperwork.
