Plc Appointed Representative Agreement

This is a previous agreement in which a company mandated by the FCA (the client) appoints another person (the appointed representative) as a designated representative and related representative, in accordance with the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000, to participate in the regulated activities of: An overview of this precedent, to be found here: Represented Appointative Agreement – Preview.
