Jessica Berton

Team: Legal
Job Title: Head of Compliance

The laws, regulations and industry best practices governing property investment in the UK and set down by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) are many and complex. Jessica’s role is to ensure that Cogress conducts its business in full compliance with all of them, at all times.

For some this might be an onerous responsibility. However, when compliance is at the heart of a company’s DNA, the job becomes significantly more straightforward. The culture at Cogress is one of the utmost integrity, where everyone strives to ensure that regulatory compliance is upheld to the highest of standards and that processes are robust and efficient. The fair treatment of investors is at the heart of our business model.

Not that life at Cogress is without challenges. The regulatory compliance landscape is constantly changing, which means Jessica is always being presented with new rules and procedures to navigate.

Before Cogress

Jessica completed a BA (Hons) degree in Business Studies at London Metropolitan University. She spent five years working for Citi (Citigroup) in London and has a background in regulatory compliance consulting.
