Brunel Pension Partnership Limited (Brunel) is pleased to announce that as of 16 March 2018, it has received authorisation from the Financial Conduct Authority to operate as a financial services firm.
The LGPS pool is now a full service MiFID firm. This means it is authorised to provide advisory and discretionary investment management services to its Clients.
Brunel submitted its application at the end of September 2017. Alpha Financial Markets Consulting provided support in the form of specialist advice on regulation and compliance.
Dawn Turner, Chief Executive Officer of Brunel, comments: “I am delighted that we have received our FCA authorisation and thank my team and Alpha for their professionalism, hard work and expertise throughout. This is an important milestone for us and means we are on schedule to deliver the benefits of LGPS investment pooling for our Clients.”
