IFAC support IFAs to get a licence with the FCA. The standards are higher than ever before, and the licence itself is a valuable thing. Tough regulation has created high barriers to entry and secure markets for those who have the licence. In practice we believe that you need a sponsor to get your licence today. If IFAC do sponsor your application, it means you are likely to succeed and you can be sure you will get into the FCA. We only charge you money if you do get a licence - so we sponsor you on a no-win no fee basis, and our success rate is very high.
