Achieve FCA authorisation with Cosegic
We have over 80 years of ex-regulator experience in-house, meaning we understand the FCA's priorities when it comes to applications for authorisation. This helps to ensure that our clients submit a complete and accurate application to the Regulator, no matter the size and sector of their firm, the first time. As one of our core service offerings, FCA applications are something we take pride in doing well.

Our understanding of the regulatory landscape
We have been servicing clients with their compliance queries since 2003, and in that time that we have seen a great deal of evolution in compliance. With more responsibility being placed at the feet of senior management and firms having to prioritise the needs of the consumer more than ever before, we firmly believe that we are on the way to compliance becoming an integrated part of every process throughout financial services firms’ organisations. We have designed our service offering accordingly to ensure that our clients fully meet their regulatory obligations and adopt them easily throughout their firms with little disruption to their day-to-day business.
Our unique perspective of the regulator
With increasingly complex regulation, businesses are seeking multi-sector specialist partners more than ever to guide them through all aspects of their compliance journey. Our wide range of financial sector experts come together on a regular basis to discuss their interactions with the FCA and the regulatory trends that they are seeing. This provides us with a more informed understanding of the FCA than our competitors, ensuring that we offer our clients solutions that are most appropriate to their needs.
