Note

It is possible, in principle, that a CAD investment firm may only provide the investment service of investment advice and hold client funds or securities, in which case the starting point is generally that it is a BIPRU 730K firm. In practice, if such a firm wishes to benefit from a lower capital treatment (for example euro 125,000), it may wish to add an arranging (bringing about) deals in investments element to its permission to enable it to receive and transmit orders in relation to MiFID instruments.
