In order to advertise financial services in certain countries, advertisers must complete a verification process. For most advertisers, this process will entail providing information about the type of financial services they provide, whether they are licensed to provide those services, and their registration number, among other things.

Information about country specific relevant regulators and enforcement dates can be found below. For information about financial service advertising in the United Kingdom, please visit our About UK Financial Services Verification page.
