The Company performs, on a daily basis, internal and external reconciliations as required by the FCA and prescribed by the rules of CASS 7 for the Company to ensure that it maintains adequate amounts in its client money accounts to cover all client funds.

In the unlikely event that the Company will be unable to pay you out, the client can contact the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS is the UK's statutory fund of last resort for customers of financial services firms. This means that FSCS can pay compensation to consumers, up to £50,000 per person per firm, if a financial services firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims against it. The actual level of compensation that will be paid out by FSCS will be based on your claim. The FSCS is an independent body, set up under the Financial Services & Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) which the Company is part of, as it is authorised and regulated by the FCA (FRN: 705428).

How long should I hold it and can I take my money out early?

Trading in CFD Products involves significant risk with frequent market movements and price changes. Clients are free to open/close a trade whenever they believe that it best fits, given that the markets are open. The Company does not prescribe a holding period for any position whether this is a buy or sell position. The client may choose to set a ‘Stop Loss’ or ‘Take Profit’ on his/her trade to minimise the risk of large unexpected movements.

Clients can withdraw their total balance whenever they choose to do so, if there are no open positions on their trading account. In case there are open positions, the client can withdraw any amount in excess of the margin required for that particular trade, i.e. their ‘free margin’. All withdrawal requests can be made from the ‘Members’ Area’ section on the Company’s website.
