Englebert, an innovative regulatory services firm boasting a collective expertise spanning more than thirty years across the legal, regulatory, and financial domains of the UK, has reached a significant milestone by securing authorization from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), enabling the approval of cryptoasset promotions within the United Kingdom

This significant accomplishment positions Englebert as a transformative force in the regulatory domain, marking a departure from conventional norms dominated by industry giants. The newly established firm, composed of seasoned professionals from traditional financial services and the crypto sector, has collectively amassed a wealth of expertise over the past 30 years, uniquely positioning Englebert to achieve what was once considered the exclusive realm of financial behemoths.
