In most instances, financial services companies that want to operate in the United Kingdom (“UK”) must be licensed by the UK regulator, the Financial Services Authority (“FSA”), to conduct business there. ACA’s FSA Authorization team is second to none in assisting with the FSA licensing process.
We have managed well over 400 license applications in the last ten years and have a perfect success record in obtaining FSA authorizations. These applications have come from, among others, many US companies expanding to the UK. Those firms have ranged from complex derivative managers and private equity and large management groups to brokers and smaller boutiques.
