FCA Authorisation

Made the decision to become a directly authorised firm? Then let us take the stress and hassle out of becoming Directly Authorised. We have successfully managed scores of applications throughout the years and therefore, we have an excellent understanding of what is required to ensure your application runs smoothly.

We are copied in on the application so that any response from the FCA comes to us as well to allow us to respond accordingly.

We will draft all the compliance documents that you need to make the application to the FCA and to start trading once the application has been approved.
