What our gold standard means for you

There are some very good reasons why our clients trust Berkeley Assets to look after their money and deliver long-term, low risk, sustainable returns. Now there’s another.

We’re happy to tell you that our UK office has received the official stamp of approval from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), one of the largest and most respected financial regulators in the world.

Following a thorough application and due diligence process, the FCA has added Berkeley Assets to its register of approved representatives that abide by a strict code of conduct to make financial markets honest and effective.

The FCA is the gold standard regulation across the globe and we’re proud to have earned this recognition. 

It represents a significant third party vote of confidence underlining the fact that we can be trusted to do things the right way. For you, our cliens, it’s further proof that you’re working with a reputable and respected firm.

The FCA provides protection for consumers, enhancing the integrity of the UK financial system and encouraging effective competition in the interests of consumers

Its endorsement comes at an exciting time for Berkeley Assets as we forge ahead with our global expansion plans, adding a range of new offices to the existing locations in London and Dubai.

The Marbella office opened last month followed quickly by Mexico City, with outposts in Africa and the Far East set to follow throughout 2019 and 2020.

As we grow, so does our commitment to our clients. As a regulated FCA firm, every process we undertake in the UK must abide by the Authority’s Handbook, which is in place to protect consumers and the financial services industry.

All our global private equity advice, services, recommendations, compliance and marketing efforts are consistent with our BCAD Ltd headquarters in London, which means that our clients have absolute peace of mind that they’re working with a trusted partner.

Not all private equity firms seek FCA approval. We, however, see this as an important milestone for Berkeley Assets due to the nature of our transparent operations and the way we communicate with our clients, particularly those in the retail market.

The FCA approval will also help attract other regulators around the world to work with us, and that’s something we encourage and are working hard for as we build the Berkeley Assets presence globally.
