Debt Capital Advisory is highly lucrative business and highly regulated under the UK Financial Conduct Authority and other European regulators.  Whether you are a currently a Debt Capital Advisor specialist, or looking at the idea of establishing your new venture following a successful career, at Vantage Ventures - we specialise in helping ventures like yours by giving you the flexibility to grow your business by on-boarding you as a Appointed Representative in as little as 4 weeks.


Unlike other FCA regulatory hosting providers, we specialise in what we know, as the age old saying goes, 'we stick to our knitting'.  This means, we not only add value in your day to day business with the introduction of new leads; but our AR model is competitively priced in that we know the business area, as well as you do.   

Our model for Debt Capital Advisory is designed for you to focus on deal origination, execution and value creation, while we look at the regulatory cover and regulatory reporting requirements, allowing you to effectively budget and scale your venture. 


Why become an FCA Appointed Representative for your Debt Capital Advisory business?

To set up as a directly approved FCA firm is a resource intensive, lengthy and costly process where you would need to demonstrate a sound business model and track record in debt capital advisory services.   Often, the Appointed Representative route is cost effective and better value in terms of resource requirements and the back office support functions available from the FCA principle firm, allowing you to focus on your core business. 

Whether you are currently an Appointed Representative looking to move to a new FCA Principal or thinking about launching your Debt Capital Advisory business as an Appointed Representative, we can help with a complete turnkey solution, allowing you to focus on your business and value creation, whilst we look after all non-core activities such as regulatory compliance.  If you are moving from another FCA principle firm, we do not charge an on-boarding fee.
