“Obtaining the Payment Institution license from the FCA fulfils one of our central objectives, as outlined in our strategy. It is also an independent endorsement of our best practices in Risk management, KYC, AML and Compliance and is testament to our high operational standards.

This license places SafeCharge in a key position to capitalise on the expansion of its business and services in the UK market and other EEA members.”
