Our regulatory hosting service enables clients to provide regulated services in the UK as an Appointed Representative of our FCA-licensed entity, Kroll Securities Limited.

Your firm will be able to provide investment advice, arrange transactions, provide corporate advisory services as well as market investment services to professional clients in the UK. The service is entirely flexible whereby you can stay as an Appointed Representative indefinitely or simply be hosted under our service while you apply for your own direct FCA authorization.

For firms looking at the UK as a potential place to do business, initiating a presence via our hosting platform is an excellent way of determining whether to invest more fully into the market. Many of our clients enjoy the freedom of marketing/distributing through our platform while being able to operate flexibly without significant operations in the UK.

The benefits of our hosting service are considerable, most notably:

  • Quick Market Entry: Offer your services to clients within just one to two months, bypassing the need for direct FCA authorization.
  • Full Compliance: With our regulatory hosting service, your business will be adopting best practices, ensuring appropriate policies and procedures in place.
  • Cost-Efficient Setup: Setting up a firm that’s directly authorized by the FCA involves significant cost, including mandatory regulatory capital and the appointment of both a compliance officer and a money laundering reporting officer. Kroll can efficiently handle these requirements on your behalf.

Together, the Vistra and Kroll teams will manage more asset classes by combining alternative and UCITS strategies, helping to drive our clients’ strategic growth aspirations.

The Kroll Manco will be rebranded to Vistra at a later date.
