Our Proven Five-Step Approach

Our technology solutions are built to streamline and support

  • MiFID and AIFM authorisation. We provided an end-to-end service, building out the operating model to gain both MiFID and AIFM licences, populating all documentation, policy development and leading the FCA Q&A phase. 

  • We worked with the CEO and CIO to develop regulatory business plans, relevant policies, and determine their regulatory capital calculation, and guided them through the MLR approvals.

  • MiFID authorisation. Our team reviewed and updated authorisation documentation as required, developed the SMCR roles and responsibilities map and led the FCA Q&A.
