The story

so far

Regulatory counsel, practically applied.

Aquest was born out of a desire to inspire firms to find the most efficient path towards regulatory and compliance matters. 

Delivering training across the industry, we ran master classes, built an online-academy, and ran bespoke training on-site, for regulated firms all over Ireland.  Nuts and bolts training has its place, however time and time again, we saw firms acquire a knowledge transfer, only to fall short at resolving how to practically apply it to their unique situation.

The beauty with running the same activity over and over again is, that it begs for efficiencies, structure and continuous refinement. 

Training evolved until Advisory formed. Today Aquest delivers regulatory counsel through Training & Advisory services for Irish Authorised firms.
