On 4 August 2021, the FCA updated its webpage concerning its approach to overseas market operators seeking to apply to become a recognised overseas investment exchange (ROIE). The FCA explains that it has published a revised direction regarding the manner in which applications for ROIE status should be made. This replaces the temporary direction put in place in September 2018 to facilitate the transition when the UK left the EU. The change does not affect current complete applications submitted by EEA market operators.
