Appointed Representatives

Laven Advisors LLP offers a UK regulatory hosting platform, which provides clients the opportunity to conduct regulated activities, such as advising and arranging deals in investments, as an Appointed Representative of Laven Advisors. This ensures clients operate under the appropriate FCA permissions without, or prior to, the client having to go through the full FCA Authorisation process. Laven Advisors, or Principal firm, has recently expanded its permissions to include hosting investment managers.

As the Principal firm, Laven Advisors will be responsible for the ongoing compliance and operational control of the Appointed Representative and therefore allow the client to focus on their business activities. The Appointed Representative title ensures clients retain their independence in terms of identity and ownership, whilst having the full support of Laven Advisors to help firms grow and achieve their objectives.

Laven Advisors offers two solutions on our platfrom:
