DPB (Investment Business) Handbook

The DPB (Investment Business) Handbook provides full details of ICAEW's licensing arrangements. This includes:

  • the agreement between the firm and ICAEW for a licence;
  • the regulated activities that can be conducted under a licence; and 
  • how regulated work should be conducted. 

Licensed firms need to familiarise themselves with the whole DPB (Investment Business) Handbook
