Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority

At 10:16 today I received an understated email from ‘’ entitled ‘Notification of Authorisation’.

I very nearly dismissed it as junk mail, and actually deleted it before a trigger in my mind prompted me to recover and re-assess.

This was indeed our Financial Conduct Authority Licence, and having worked tirelessly since May 2014 in anticipation of the day we would boast a ‘licence to carry on trading’, the expected fanfare accompanying the delivery of this coveted licence was, in reality, no more than the trumbleweed associated with one of my better jokes.

We are aurthorsied and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority….sssshhh.
