AR Take-On Process






Principal firms must ensure adequate due diligence is undertaken and recorded for all Appointed Representatives (AR’s) joining the firm and operating under the principals’ regulatory permission. Each step of the process and supporting information will need to be evidenced to the regulator which includes investigation, document checking and verification.
