How is my money protected?

In accordance with the Cyprus Securities (CySec) rules regarding client monies, all retail client money is held in segregated client money accounts.

We hold all client money with top-tier banks, and have trust letters in place with each of these banks to ensure that our client money remains segregated from the assets of the bank. We use our own funds for hedging client trades, and we never engage in any proprietary trading.

The Company is also a member of the 'Investor Compensation Fund' (ICF). The maximum amount of compensations equals EUR 20,000 or 90% of the covered investor's claim, whichever is lower. Please refer to our Investor Compensation Fund statement.
