The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulates financial services in the UK, from mortgage brokers to fund managers. If your business carries out activities regulated under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 you will need to seek Direct Authorisation (or become an Appointed Representative of a Directly Authorised Firm) from the FCA.

We are well-versed in handling all aspects of the FCA application process for Direct Authorisation on our clients’ behalf.
