Hello,

You would need authorisation from the FCA.

See here for further information on how to apply for this authorisation: https://www.fca.org.uk/firms/authorisation

May I help further?

Do I have to hold any certificates or degrees in order to apply for fca authorisation?

The requirement is that: "whether those who manage A’s affairs have adequate skills and experience and have acted and may be expected to act with probity;"
