Independently East Ltd

Under Investigation 11/09/2023

FRN: 488046

Independently East Ltd is a regulated firm which was authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to provide financial advice.

The firm entered compulsory liquidation on 11 September 2023 following an application made by the FCA. The Official Receiver has been appointed as liquidator.

The FCA says it took action on 13 February 2023 which meant that the firm’s accounts were frozen and its permissions to carry out regulatory activities were cancelled.

Why was Independently East Ltd placed into liquidation?

According to the FCA following the issue of the First Supervisory Notice to the firm on 13 February 2023, the Regulator remained concerned that the firm wasn’t able to meet its debts as they fell due. The FCA said that: “In order to protect consumers we have taken action to place IEL (Independently East Ltd) into liquidation.”

It added: “We are also concerned about the ability of IEL to comply with their regulatory requirements, their overall cooperation with the FCA and have concerns over how they have used consumer funds.”
