Messels Compliance Service

IRF works closely with Messels in order to offer a ‘compliance umbrella’ service for research providers backed up by a team of talented and experienced regulatory professionals.

Messels is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority of the UK and can ‘take on’ a  research provider and supply them with immediate compliance cover (including the setting up of procedures, systems and controls) allowing the firm to start trading, without having to wait for the long and costly process of direct authorisation to complete.

Once up and running, the research provider can decide whether to go for full authorisation, or remain an ‘appointed representative’ of Messels – effectively outsourcing compliance matters.
