As a Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) authorised and regulated entity, Trinity has the ability to host Appointed Representatives under our licence. As an Appointed Representative, an entity is able to carry out certain regulated financial activities, without being directly authorised and regulated by the FCA in its own right. An Appointed Representative effectively "borrows" certain of the permissions granted by the FCA to the sponsoring firm who in turn holds responsibility for the Appointed Representative activities.
This is a frequently used route for entities who do not need, or want, full direct authorisation, or who are seeking full authorisation but because of the long lead time (generally up to 6 months) require an interim solution to enable them to arrange, advise, or sell its own or others' investment products until full permission is granted.
For more information on what an Appointed Representative is and how this could benefit you, please visit the FCA Website or, please contact our team on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss becoming an Appointed Representative of Trinity.
