‘An important step‘ in the integration of GAIN Capital into the StoneX Group

On 28 February 2021, StoneX successfully migrated GAIN Capital UK Limited (GCUK) into its StoneX Financial Ltd (SFL) entity. It follows the acquisition of the GAIN Capital Group by StoneX Group Inc. (formerly INTL FCStone Inc.) in July of 2020.

‘This is an important step in the integration of GAIN Capital into the StoneX group, and gives us an incredible opportunity to leverage their capabilities and ecosystem of products, enabling us to deliver an even more comprehensive offering to our customers. StoneX has more than 100 years of experience in financial markets and as a company listed on NASDAQ, it meets strict standards in corporate governance, financial reporting and disclosure.’

Giles Watts, Senior Vice President, Regional Business Director

‘We are excited about the future for City Index and FOREX.com as a part of what is a global financial services network. Our clients will benefit from a richer product offering as well as the expanded resources and greater scale of the combined firm. By bringing together GAIN’s expertise in serving the retail customer and StoneX’ unparalleled access to the financial markets it creates an exciting value proposition and enables the combined group to serve a wider range of customers.’

The migration of GAIN Capital UK to SFL means that it has transferred all its rights, obligations and liabilities and live and demo accounts to SFL with the effect that SFL is now a new party to all live and demo account Terms and Policies, and will operate those accounts, substituting GCUK.

It doesn’t impact how live and demo accounts are accessed or operate, neither does it fundamentally change the way personal data is processed.


Does SFL participate in the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)?

Will clients’ positions be affected?

Does this change the way clients fund or withdraw?

Will client account protections be affected?

Will we be changing the product offering to clients?

Will the regulator stay the same?

Will client account leverage be affected?
