CASS 5.5.15GRP
A firm which takes advantage of CASS 5.5.14 R will need to consider whether its permission should include the permitted activity of managing investments.

It is unlikely to need such a permission, however, if it is merely granted a power to invest but the deed stipulates

122A.

In relation to activity number 9A, see TC 2.1.5HR and TC 2.1.6R(2). There is no qualification for this activity in the list of qualifications set out in TC Appendix 4E. However, the effect of TC 2.1.5HR is that an employeeadvising on P2P agreements must be qualified to the same standard as if that employee were providing investment advice to retail clients on retail investment products.

103.

For the purpose of product numbers 20, 20A and 21 the activity of arranging (bringing about) referred to in the activity column:

(a) includes activity which would be arranging (bringing about) but for the exclusion in article 28A of the Regulated Activities Order; and

(b) does not include activities which taken on their own would not fall within the definition of that activity. For these purposes no account should be taken of the fact that for an activity to be a regulated activity it must be carried on by way of business (see PERG 4.3).

4.

In this Appendix, paragraphs 23A, 23B, 23C, 23D and 23E relate to the implementation of article 9(1) of the MCD. The specified activities do not, in and of themselves, attract a qualification requirement. However, where those activities overlap with those specified under the heading "mortgage activity and reversion activity carried on for a customer", qualification requirements may apply.
