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.
