RegTech software to streamline compliance and due diligence work flows.

Laven’s approach to regulatory software is unique as it leverages advanced technology with subject matter expertise. It is this combination which sets Laven apart in the RegTech space.

Streamline the application process with Laven

Laven can help with the preparation of all necessary processes and documents to ensure ongoing momentum and efficiency in your application. This application process generally takes 6-9 months from beginning to end.

Alternatively, whilst a firm is seeking its own license it can utilise Laven’s by becoming an Appointed Representative of Laven Advisors under our hosting solution. This enables a firm to entirely outsource all of the compliance functions. This reduces the timescale considerably and typically this relationship can become active within 2-6 weeks.

Get to market with ease and confidence.

Laven has two regulated entities: Laven Advisors LLP and Lumen Asset Management Limited. Laven Advisors LLP offers a UK regulatory hosting platform which provides clients the opportunity to conduct regulated activities as an Appointed Representative (AR) or manage funds (AIFs) or segregated accounts by becoming a part of the firm. This avoids the need to be directly regulated by the FCA and can help you gain the compliance and risk management experience needed to later pursue your own FCA authorisation.

This allows clients to focus on their core business activities and retain their independence in terms of identity and ownership, whilst having the full support of Laven to help them grow and achieve their objectives.
