Quintessential Finance Group rebrands to Quint as it gains FCA approval PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 12 August 2015

Quintessential Finance Group has rebranded as Quint Group to better reflect its identity as an award-winning and innovative financial technology business, as it celebrates being the first firm of its type to gain FCA Principal status approval as a Consumer Credit Firm.

Following a rigorous application process, Principal status allows Quint to build a network of Appointed Representatives (ARs) and Introducer Appointed Representatives (IARs) whilst providing them with compliance support.
Most importantly companies which use Quint’s market-leading Pingtree Technology Platform will be able to continue to trade compliantly without the requirement of being directly authorised by the FCA.
Both the name change and approval continue Quint’s drive to become a powerhouse in UK and global fin tech.
Greg Cox, co-founder and chief executive of Quint Group, said: “Gaining FCA approval and Principal status is a huge step for the business and for our partners. For affiliates it means that we can provide compliance support and provide IAR status for those using our technology and services, which we know can be complex and costly to navigate. For our financial services partners it provides that reassurance and peace of mind that Quint is providing market-leading technology and is a responsible operator.
“Rebranding to the Quint Group better reflects our businesses, which are built on innovative and cutting-edge financial technology that empowers both business and consumers. Both of these developments will provide a fantastic springboard for the next phase in our development.”

The Quint Group is a leading financial services technology provider and one of the UK’s largest independent financial technology groups. It was also identified as the top financial technology business in the UK, in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 in 2013.
Founded in 2009, the Group is headquartered south of Manchester and now operates in four countries, with over 100 employees servicing both directly marketed consumers and third party introductions.
Greg Cox continued: “We have ambitious plans over the coming years as we continue to make headway across emerging markets internationally and broaden the group’s technology and product offering.
“Already this year we have expanded our innovative Pingtree technology into the insurance sector which is growing rapidly.”
