How is my money protected?
All retail client money is fully segregated from our own funds and held in separate accounts with top-tier banks. We only use our own funds for hedging and never engage in proprietary trading.
FOREX.com is part of StoneX Group Inc., a NASDAQ-listed company with a strong balance sheet and experienced management team, serving clients in multiple countries worldwide.
In addition, clients may be eligible for the Canadian Investor Protection Fund in the event the firm becomes insolvent or ceases trading.
Where are my funds kept?
All customer deposits are kept separate from our own operating funds and distributed across a global network of custodian banks. We enforce robust bank review and monitoring guidelines which are set by the Risk Committee of StoneX Group Inc.
What is FOREX.com's Anti-Money Laundering (AML) policy?
FOREX.com actively complies with all anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism laws and regulations to the fullest extent that it can, under all applicable foreign and domestic laws.
On an ongoing basis, we review account activity for evidence of suspicious transactions that may be indicative of money laundering activities. This review may include surveillance of:
- Money flows into and out of accounts
- The origin and destination of wire transfers
- Other activity outside the normal course of business.
In order to be fully compliant with applicable regulatory requirements, FOREX.com may occasionally reach out for additional information and/or documentation from clients.
