Appointed Representative

As we are FCA regulated, our business can act as Principal, working with Appointed Representatives (AR) and enabling the AR to carry out regulated activities under our supervision. An Appointed Representative is a person or firm who conducts certain regulated activities through a firm that is directly authorised with the FCA. This firm is known as the AR’s ‘Principal’.

Becoming an AR can be an efficient solution if you need to get your business up and running quickly. Being an AR allows you to conduct certain regulated activities, without needing to navigate the full FCA application process and tie up capital for regulatory purposes. The main advantages of this route are that it is quicker than a direct authorisation, you will have independent oversight of your activities via the Principal firm and you are not subject to a fixed capital requirement.

If you are interested in learning more about becoming an appointed representative, get in touch with our Fund Management team. We’d love to hear more about your business and how we can help.

Risk Warning

Our investment products may place your capital at risk and the value of them may go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount they invest. Investments in unquoted early stage/small companies and funds that invest in these smaller companies, including but not limited to, the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS), Venture Capital Trusts (VCT), Social Investment Tax Reliefs (SITR) and are high risk and you should not invest unless you can afford total loss or if you are likely to require the capital in the near term since such investments can be difficult to realise.

The tax treatment of the investments depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change in future. The availability of tax reliefs depends on the Company invested in maintaining its qualifying status. This information provided on our website is based on our understanding of current taxation law and HM Revenue and Customs practice, which may change in the future. The content of our website is not intended to constitute investment, tax or legal advice. Neither past performance or forecasts are reliable indicators of future results and should not be relied upon. We recommend you seek independent advice before investing in our investment products.
