Regulatory Compliance

Authorisation

Are you a financial services start up or scale up looking for a regulatory licence?

As a financial services company who wants to carry on regulated activities, you will need the approval of the relevant regulator e.g. FCA, PRA or Central Bank. If you want to become a bank (a credit institution), you will have to apply for a banking licence with the PRA.

As experts in the industry who have successfully helped companies achieve authorisation with the FCA, PRA and Central Bank, we welcome you to start a conversation with our experts to see how we can help you with this essential part of your set up or scale up while you get on with the important task of building and growing your business.

Authorised payment institutions and e money institutions

Obtaining UK, Irish or other European authorisation requires you to demonstrate to the FCA, CBI or other EU regulator that your business model is one that meets the regulator’s expectations, that the owners and directors are fit and proper, and that there are robust systems and controls in place. Authorisation can only be obtained if all of these requirements are met.

Let our experts guide you through the authorisation process

We are experts in authorisations as we have assisted in hundreds of firms authorisations and many of our team used to work in the FCA, so we know what the regulator is looking for. Our customer centric approach also means that everyone from small financial services firms starting up to longer-established companies looking to scale up trust us with their authorisation.
