As a regulated firm, ActivTrades must comply with all FCA principles for businesses. In respect to Client Assets, principle 10 establishes that a firm must arrange adequate protection for client assets when it is responsible for them. In the event of insolvency of the firm, clients funds are protected as they are held on segregated accounts which are separate from ActivTrades corporate funds.
The Client Assets Sourcebook (CASS), of the FCA Handbook, sets out the rules to holding client assets. These include organisational requirements, segregation methodology, records and reconciliation and acknowledgement of trust.
Further to the client assets protection, our clients are also protected under the (FSCS). This is a fund of last resort for customers of authorised financial services firms in case of default up to a maximum value of £ 85,000 per person. ActivTrades clients can benefit from extra security exceeding the FSCS threshold by up to £1,000,000 per client – via our Excess of FSCS Insurance.
