On this page
You must apply to the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) in order to be authorised as a:
- insurer (general or life)
- managing agent of a Lloyd’s syndicate
We also need to give our consent before the PRA will authorise you.
Preparing your application
Before submitting your application, please also read our page about how to apply for authorisation.
