At ActivTrades all client funds are held in segregated accounts. This means client deposits are kept in a separate bank account away from company funds and cannot be used for any purpose other than to support client trading. Client money segregation along with our careful management of company resources provides additional security to all our clients that their funds are completely safe with us. Moreover, segregation of client funds ensure that in the unlikely event that ActivTrades goes into bankruptcy or default, client money cannot be used for any other purposes.
As additional security, client funds are kept with a number of banks including top tier bank Barclays Bank PLC. ActivTrades undertakes six-monthly reviews of the creditworthiness of all of its credit counterparties to ensure that they remain low risk to our business.
