Welcome to Midmar Capital

Midmar Capital is an FCA-authorised investment management firm that provides regulatory incubation and support services for start-up investment businesses with a focus upon alternative assets such as private equity, venture capital and hedge funds.

As we come from asset management backgrounds ourselves, we recognise that newly-established investment firms need to be focused on making good investment decisions in order to develop and grow. Our business is providing support with regulatory authorisation, compliance and other non-investment decisions that can detract from this focus.

EU Referendum Result

With the outcome of the UK referendum resulting in a narrow result to leave the EU, this obviously raises questions regarding future financial regulation and how this may look both in the immediate short term and longer term.

At present we believe it is too early to give any clear guidance to clients given the steps that need to be taken regarding what form of overall structure will be in place going forward for the UK to continue to work with - but not be part of – the EU. As soon as any clear messages from the UK government are given on this, including any different options being considered, we will keep all clients up to date with our understanding of this. This will in due course include consideration on such areas as the implementation of EU MiFID 2 which is anticipated to be implemented by January 2018.

However what is clear is that in the short term, there is no change to UK regulation, and firms should continue to comply with relevant existing UK, EU and even global regulations that currently apply to their business. And also what is clear is that regulation itself will not disappear, given that some (but not all) of what governs UK FCA rules arises from UK financial regulation, i.e the Financial Services and Markets Act but also existing EU legislation already implemented. Any changes will take at least 1 to 2 years - if not longer - to structure as to how UK regulated financial services business interact in the EU regulatory structure – and the same for non-UK firms wishing to do business in the UK.

In the meantime, if anyone has any queries or concerns on this in the short term, please do not hesitate to contact us.
