Nov 30, 2023
London, 30 November – Allfunds (AMS:ALLFG), the leading B2B WealthTech platform for the fund management industry, today announces that is has been authorised to operate as a Third Country Branch in the UK, strengthening its business footprint in the UK market.
Allfunds’ UK business will be dual-regulated by both the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), anticipating the end of the Temporary Permissions Regime for UK branches of EEA-regulated firms. Under its FCA authorization, it will operate under the UK’s Client Assets Sourcebook (CASS) regulatory provisions in offering client assets safekeeping under its UK nominee accounts structure.
Allfunds’ authorisation in the UK symbolises its commitment to the highest levels of regulatory adherence in the key markets in which the business operates. The authorisation also cements Allfunds’ status as a leading, responsible provider of financial and banking services to a growing roster of clients in the UK wealth management market, encompassing investment management and insurance firms plus intermediary and pensions platforms.
Tom Wooders, UK Country Head of Allfunds of Allfunds commented: “Allfunds’ authorisation in the UK marks an important milestone in the continued growth of our business in a key global market, while also demonstrating our commitment to ensuring strong performance that ultimately underpins the quality of the service received by our clients. Allfunds’ regulatory authorisation in the UK comes at a critical time, as the industry seeks trusted partners for the delivery of sophisticated, high-quality services and greater efficiencies in their own client service. We are confident this milestone will strengthen our existing client relationships while positioning us strongly to capitalise on demand for services such as those Allfunds provide.”
