The TIFAC Story

Established in January 2021, The IFA Corporation Ltd (TIFAC) was founded by Phil Dibb and Katherine Horgan after many years of running two Compliance companies in parallel. After the success of Compliance News Ltd and Just CRS Ltd launching TIFAC enables us to provide a bespoke Compliance Service tailored to our clients needs.
