About FAP Services
In early 2020 Financial Advice Provider Services Limited (FAP Services) was founded by industry expert Cecilia Farrow.
With the incoming regulations, it was Cecilia’s belief that advisers with a FAP License would be seeking services that included smart technology, advice tools, policies and procedures, training, and coaching to support them to give high-quality advice and to manage their compliance requirements effectively.
FAP Services was created to provide adviser businesses with an all-encompassing and holistic service offering that delivers a truly valuable proposition to its network members.

Cecilia’s passion is working alongside advisers to train, coach and mentor them so that they become true market leaders in risk advice and have thriving successful businesses.
