Companies in different financial situations (including FX, wealth managers, family offices, IB, M&As, FAs, IAs, payment processors, and fund managers) will at some point in their lifecycles find it necessary or desirable to grow beyond their current licensing limitations. For many such businesses, the natural way to move forward is by purchasing a financial institution or bank.

If you would like Financial Licensing Advisors to evaluate your financial institution before you sell it, we will need the following:

  • Company documents and licenses for the financial institution.
  • Two proofs of address and major stockholders IDs.
  • CVs of all first- and second-level managers and directors.
  • CVs of major shareholders.
  • Recent background check of major shareholders and directives (should be performed by an authorized independent background reviewer).
  • Audit statements (performed by Deloitte, EY, KPMG, BDO, PWC, or any other highly reputable auditor); if you are currently auditing with a smaller firm, a special audit should be done by any of the auditors described.
  • A detailed explanation of why you and your partners are willing to sell the financial institution.
  • Financial statements detailing your current position and the general status of such.
  • Contact details of regulatory authorities in all applicable jurisdictions (we will contact authorities in all cases).
  • All information submitted to regulatory bodies in the last 18 months, including quarterly and monthly reports.
  • NDA and commission contract approval.
  • Report on the IT systems and compliance platforms that your financial institution uses.
  • SWIFT registration information.
  • Banking associations registration information.
  • Signed selling application request including initial DD reviews for all managers and directors.
  • Capital requirements deposit statements and proof of such.
  • List of all liabilities and company assets in foreign jurisdictions (not supervised).

Any other documents as requested by Financial Licensing Advisors.

*All documentation should be made available, notarized and apostilled within the last three months of the application being signed.
