Funds Safety

All customer deposits at FOREX.com are kept separate from our own operating funds and distributed across a global network of custodian banks and brokers. 

Customer assets on deposit, obligations to customers and excess funds on deposit supporting such customer obligations are reported to the NFA on a daily basis. We perform robust bank/broker reviews and assess counterparty creditworthiness daily in light of pre-established limits for all entities holding FOREX.com firm and customer assets.
