About Nexus

We are proud to introduce to you Nexus Global (NXG) our dedicated IFA Support Network.

Nexus Global specialises in providing a regulatory platform and compliance support to international financial advisers and intermediaries. This then enables the IFA to trade under their chosen brand whilst meeting the regulatory requirements of EEA (European Economic Area) financial regulators and to provide their clients with a professional service.

By outsourcing the burden of compliance in a ever-changing regulatory environment this allows the intermediary to focus on providing advice on the financial needs of the people and companies that require professional and independent financial services.

The intermediaries Nexus Global represent, provide face to face advice and specialise in meeting the financial needs of people or companies that have created more capital, or who earn higher incomes, than average, and whose circumstances are therefore more complicated than usual.

Regulated By
