Regulatory Hosting Services

We help businesses undertake regulated activity quicker than the length of time it takes to obtain authorisation from the FCA.

Appointed representative (AR) and regulatory umbrella services

Early stage businesses often lack the infrastructure, resources and compliance knowledge to obtain FCA authorisation at the beginning of their journey.

Through our hosted regulatory platform, our clients can market their products and provide investment advice as an appointed representative (AR) of our subsidiary, Newgate Compliance.

We can provide or arrange regulatory coverage for a wide variety of client types such as investment advisory firms and discretionary investment managers. We do not offer regulatory coverage for firms with retail customers.

Our team are comprised of many former FCA employees who have the knowledge to enable companies to get to market quicker through first-hand experience of working at the regulator.
