    the discretion of its board to make strategic decisions on behalf of the applicant has not been limited or transferred to a person outside the applicant’s group; and

LR 6.13.2GRP

1In considering whether an applicant has satisfied LR 6.13.1R, the FCA will consider, among other things, whether the board of the applicant consists solely of non-executive directors and whether significant elements of the strategic decision-making of or planning for the applicant take place outside the applicant’s group, for example with an external management company.
