Investment firms we regulate
A PRA-designated investment is a firm that, broadly speaking, meets the following conditions:
- It has, or has applied for, permission to deal in investments as principal
- It has (or would have if it was authorised) a minimum capital of €730,000, or is broadly analogous to a European Economic Area (EEA) passporting firm or non-EEA firm
- It qualifies under our criteria for designated investment firms.
Firms that appear on this list do not hold permission to take deposits. Deposit takers with similar business models to the firms in this list appear in the list of banks we regulate.
Investment firms that do not appear on either of these lists are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
