Complyport Included in FCA’s Skilled Person Panel

Complyport is delighted to announce that it has been included in the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)’s Skilled Person Panel for Prudential – Adequate Financial Resources for FCA solo-regulated firm. ‘Skilled persons’ are external sources used by the UK Regulator when they need to source additional expert views or additional analysis “about aspects of a regulated firm’s activities”. Firms included on the Skilled Person Panel are pre-vetted services suppliers that FCA must refer to when seeking tenders for the supply of services to the FCA; the FCA is the client and is responsible for the payment of fees.

Inclusion in the Skilled Person panel  for Prudential – Adequate Financial Resources for FCA solo-regulated firm  means that, if required by the FCA, Complyport can provide “Advice, skills and technical expertise in evaluating whether solo-regulated firms are accurately assessing adequate financial resources to ensure they meet threshold conditions and on-going regulatory requirements.”

Paul Grainger, Chairman of Complyport, said:

“Complyport is very pleased we have been included in the Financial Conduct Authority’s S166 Skilled Persons Panel for the period to 31 March 2026. It is recognition of the expertise within our team and that we meet the exacting standards required to provide services to the FCA.”
