What does it mean that you are designated by BBB and HMT?

As a result of the financial crisis the government launched an initiative that resulted in the creation of an act of parliament authorising the Treasury to designate (or authorise) finance platforms such as ABF. This designation has only been given to three platforms, of which ABF is one. It is important to note that ABF was also the platform who initiated the entire designated platform process back in 2013.
