Welch Hornsby, Inc.

“Welch Hornsby, Inc. initially partnered with Focus 1 for a mock SEC examination. The engagement proved invaluable in strengthening the Firm’s compliance program. This initial experience led Welch Hornsby to continue its partnership with Toby and the Focus 1 compliance team. To date, Focus 1’s accessibility, expertise and proactive guidance have played a key role in further developing the Firm’s compliance program.

Perhaps most importantly, they have become a trusted compliance partner, helping us navigate the ever-changing regulatory environment.”
