Welcome to our RESOURCES area

Our members and partners are developing platforms and tools everyday to help connect, inform and develop the FinTech community. So we have designed this area to provide a view of useful tools that you can use at whatever stage you are in your FinTech journey.

Please get in touch via the form below if you think you have a resource the community would benefit from.

Engage: Authorisation Tool

FinTechs looking to get authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority often find the journey ahead a daunting one. Not only is it a complex task, but the amount of support you need is often unclear and fees charged by consultants can quickly mount up. 

The Hogan Lovells Engage: Authorisation Tool will guide you through the key stages of the process, letting you know where you stand, before offering bespoke, fixed-fee support packages that explain clearly what you need and what it will cost.

CMO Forum

The CMO forum is an Innovate Finance led member series focusing on all aspects of marketing. The forum is designed to bring together like-minded FinTech professionals to discuss pain-points, challenges and solutions.

To support the discussions Innovate Finance developed the CMO forum online portal where members have access to features like vendor lists for tools and platforms across the marketing spectrum, from content management systems to social media tools. To get access to the forum you must be an Innovate Finance member and to request the member password you simply need to click the option when prompted.

Industry Sandbox

Industry Sandboxes are an advancement in open innovation which present an opportunity to further develop, accelerate and promote collaboration in the FinTech ecosystem.

The UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) invited Innovate Finance to chair an industry consultation to explore the feasibility of an industry led sandbox for testing off-markets financial innovation. The consultation was conducted between July 2016 and April 2017. You can access the full set of consultation findings, best practices and recommendations by clicking below. 

Regulatory Accelerator

Cost and management time devoted to becoming and being authorised are a major investment for any business and you will want to get things done quickly, efficiently, and right first time. 

The Regulatory Accelerator can help you understand the FCA regulatory regime, including whether you need to be an authorised firm or an appointed representative, whether you are making financial promotions, the FCA application process and the rules that apply to you once you are regulated.
