The Jenga IP team is pleased to announce it has received its regulatory approval from the Financial Conduct Authority “FCA”, the UK’s financial regulatory body, to manage an Alternative Investment Fund (AIF), carry out regulated activities, arrange deals in investments, advice on investments, and safeguard assets. (FRN: 973457)
The application process was a pivotal period for us to reflect on the type of firm we want to build over the long term. During the application process, Jenga updated its operational policies and legal scope with the support of our compliance consultant, Effecta Compliance Ltd and our onshore and offshore legal counsel, Haynes & Boone and Ogier.
Several firms have been appointed to provide further services across fund administration, prime brokerage, professional indemnity and D&O insurance, audit and accounting, among others. Jenga looks forward to working with these companies as we launch and grow our Global Equities Fund.
Ensuring we operate with the necessary financial flexibility is crucial and the management company has capitalised its balance sheet with two years of operational costs. This will allow the team to focus on delivering a high-quality service to its clients.
We started our journey in 2019 as an investment club with a passion for investing in equities and we are glad we can continue building on this passion in a regulated environment. In a statement from our CEO, “We worked hard to gain our FCA regulatory permissions and now, we must work even harder to maintain our licence by operating within the regulatory guidelines while delivering a high-quality service to clients.”
Thank you to our executive directors (SMF 3), Anil Joshi and Steve Middleton, for providing their expertise during the application process. They will both continue to serve as executive directors and we look forward to their support as we grow over the next years.
Jenga remains 100% employee-owned and with the regulatory and initial operational hurdles now completed, we are glad we can now focus on delivering performance and value creation for clients in a fully aligned manner.
