We advise a material share of the UK’s fintech market including P2P lending, e-money, robo-advice, crowdfunding and cryptocurrency firms. We support both new and existing firms through FCA direct authorisation and offer consultancy support thereafter, as well as through our industry-leading regulatory incubator.

Our dedicated team can help with all areas including;

It’s important to understand that to launch a FinTech business it may take 8-12 months to obtain direct authorisation. In addition, it has been well documented that the FCA has turned down a number of applications in the FinTech sector with applications being deemed either incomplete or individuals not understanding their regulatory obligations. Therefore it is important that you work with a trusted partner who has a success rate that can demonstrate achievement.

As well as assisting with the process of Direct Authorisation, Thistle can also offer FinTech firms an “incubator” arrangement by becoming an Appointed Representative
