Regulatory Hosting and Appointed Representative Services


You already manage your business. Let us manage your compliance.

Your focus is right where it should be—on your core business. We provide expert compliance support and guidance to keep it that way.

Regulatory Hosting—All the infrastructure, minus the legwork

Our Appointed Representative (AR) Services offer investment managers a quick and easy alternative to direct Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) authorisation. By appointing IQ-EQ as your regulatory host, you’ll use our regulatory permissions to conduct regulated activities including fund management, corporate finance, and marketing services.

We also offer a hosted AIFM platform to give emerging and established funds fast access to a regulated AIFM.

  • Support from a dedicated team of compliance professionals and a leading compliance technology platform
