Compass Products

Compass is a cross-border advice & registration service being provided by Midshore, which is constantly being updated and added to. It forms part of our regulatory offering and is a key tool in ensuring that financial services and products can reach the widest audience possible.


This has been developed as a service to assist fund providers with understanding the jurisdictional access that international funds may enjoy and to provide assistance with accessing those markets. Those operating a fund want it to have access to as many potential investors in as many jurisdictions as possible, whilst ensuring that their sales also comply with local regulatory and legal requirements.

Compass:Investment Services

This service provides information and assistance for financial institutions wishing to provide investment services (including investment advice and management) into key jurisdictions. Besides the EU countries under the MiFID II/MiFIR regime the service will also offer guidance in providing investment services into other key jurisdictions.


This is a future enhancement that will deal with investing into markets with complex restrictions, such as China (QFII, RQFII, Stock Connect & CIMB) and Saudi Arabia (QFI/QFIC).


This recently-launched service provides those with UK financial services firms or subsidiaries with advice and assistance on maintaining access to markets in the EU following the UK’s exit from the Union. This is a combined service utilising aspects of both Compass:Funds and Compass:Investment Services alongside specific transitional and temporary permissions regimes.

Why Compass? Compass is the only services of its kind provided specifically for the international financial services market. Midshore’s international regulatory expertise is your tool to better international market access.
