What does it mean to be Directly Authorised by the FCA?

Being Directly Authorised by the FCA is a route that many of our clients decide to take. It can be better for businesses who need to perform certain regulated activities and it gives you greater oversight and control internally.

But getting authorised can be confusing and a difficult process if you've not done it before so we use our vast experience and expertise to guide you through the stages in the most efficent manner.

And post authorisation we can continue to work with you as your outsourced compliance team to ensure that you keep up to the standards expected by the FCA. We can even manage your annual submissions to the FCA required by law using the RegData system.
