1. Segregation of Client Funds
Client funds are held in accordance with ASIC and FCA requirements, in segregated client trust accounts, separate from the firm’s capital. Customer funds are never co-mingled with the company funds. This safety measure ensures that the Clients funds cannot be used for any other purpose. In the unlikely event of insolvency of the firm, these segregated assets are not available to general creditors and are therefore protected against creditors’ claims.

All companies regulated by ASIC and FCA are obligated to meet financial standards and are held accountable for integrity within financial markets. These regulators work to protect consumers and investors by providing education to traders, offering ongoing support and informational tools and working in partnership with the financial services industry to promote the best trading practices.
