In most circumstances, financial services companies that would like to conduct business in and from the United Kingdom (“UK”) must be licensed by one or, potentially, both of the UK regulators: the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”), and the Prudential Regulatory Authority (“PRA”). ACA’s FCA Authorization team is second to none in assisting with the FCA licensing process.
The team has managed well over 500 license applications in the last twelve years and have a perfect success record in obtaining FCA/FSA authorizations for our clients. These applications have come from, among others, many U.S. companies expanding into the UK. Those firms have ranged from complex derivative managers and private equity and large management groups to brokers and smaller boutiques.
