Protections you'll waive

Prescribed Risk Warning
We will not be required to provide you with a standardised risk warning, as prescribed by FCA, including the percentage of clients that lose money trading with ActivTrades PLC.
Restriction on Incentives
You will not be protected by FCA’s restrictions on offering monetary and non-monetary benefits to retail investors and we may offer you incentives to trade CFDs with us.
*As a professional client you will normally be eligible to make a claim against the FSCS and our insurance policy, and take any complaint you might have to the Financial Ombudsman Service, as long as your account with ActivTrades is not your main trade or business.
