    Join FIF and you become an Appointed Representative under our approved status as Principal. This means FIF assumes ultimate regulatory responsibility for your business. As an Appointed Representative you need not obtain authorisation from the FCA and you can simply get on with your day job.

    As FIF have already obtained Principal status from the FCA, joining us an Appointed Representative means you can rest easy, safe in the knowledge that someone else will handle the administrative burden of complying with the regulator's requirements for you.
