UK Financial Promotions Approval Service

Navigating UK's Financial Promotions Regime with Archax

Archax is proud to introduce its exclusive UK Financial Promotions Approval Service, designed to support crypto market players to promote their products and services with credibility and trust.

As one of the few firms expected to provide this service, we extend our regulatory expertise to companies eager to navigate the intricate landscape of financial promotions in the UK. Our renowned status as the UK's first and only FCA regulated digital securities exchange, broker, and custodian empowers us with the required knowledge, skills, and authority to guide your venture towards regulatory compliance with the UK’s new Financial Promotions Regime.

When the regime comes into force on 8 October 2023 there will be 3 routes to lawfully communicate cryptoasset promotions to UK consumers:

  1. The promotion is communicated by an FCA authorised person.
  2. The promotion is made by an unauthorised person but approved by an FCA authorised person.
  3. The promotion is communicated by a cryptoasset business registered with the FCA under the Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds Regulations 2017 (MLRs)

Promotions that are not made using one of these routes will be in breach of section 21 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA), which is a criminal offence punishable by up to 2 years imprisonment, an unlimited fine, or both.

In line with the above, we're not just providing a service; we're providing a lifeline to firms who wish to operate within the UK cryptoasset market. We are committed to our services and to fostering a credible and secure UK market, providing both retail and professional investors with a sense of safety and protection. Our mission is to equip them with the necessary information to make well-informed investment decisions aligned with their specific objectives.


Archax is already supporting one of the industry’s largest firms, leveraging our extensive regulatory expertise that uniquely positions us to assist your business in navigating the regulatory landscape. With our proactive approach, we don’t just monitor the financial market horizon; we help shape and define the course of the crypto industry and we believe in achieving this together..
