Essex, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/25/2013 -- Pragmatic Compliance Solutions (PCS) is offering FCA authorisation consulting services to individuals and businesses. Anybody who wants to operate in the financial services area now needs either authorisation or registration with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and this is much easier to acquire with the help of a professional.
In order to be able to operate as a financial advisor, individuals and firms are now obliged to become authorised by the FCA. Each application pack that is submitted needs to be constructed with care in order to meet the stringent regulation requirements.
*name of spokesperson*, *put role name here* says: “Our consulting practice is there for firms who need guidance from people who have extensive knowledge about what it takes to gain FCA authorisation. PCS offers a free service those who are involved in providing financial services. Although the FCA worked hard to make the process as simple as possible, in reality the process can be a fairly complicated affair with a number of hurdles.”
“We want to help advisors in the financial industry so that they can devote more time to focus on being able to help their clients. Since April 2013 when the FCA started working alongside the Prudential Regulation Authority in dual-regulation, financial entities are finding the amount of regulation requirements challenging to meet. Our consulting service has substantial expertise that makes this process as easy and fast as possible to complete as we’ve been helping to get firms through the authorisation process for over twenty years.”
PCS offers each client access to the support that they need to pass through the daunting process including the preparation for authorisation, completion and submission of the application forms with the relevant supplements and assistance in post-authorisation regulatory requirements.
With the FCA now monitoring the business of financial service providers, there are certain standards that have to be adhered to. Failure to do so can result in fines or even the prevention of being able to operate in the financial services arena. PCS’s service is free to clients as their fee will be taken as a small percentage from the service provider.
