Funds protection

Providing leading funds security services, we believe that our methods will positively affect the trading of our clients and allow them to fully concentrate on their trading strategies when trading with CMC Capital.

* Security funds

We value and understand the importance of security of our clients'funds, and we have implemented measures, which are usually intended for institutional traders, so that all clients'funds are fully protected using an extremely high level of funds protection.

* Segregation of client funds

The separation of customer funds ensures that customers can feel comfortable investing with CMC Capital. Funds are stored in separate accounts in AA class banks and are fully protected.

* Funds administration and audit

All accounts at CMC Capital are independent of each other under the supervision of independent auditors who professionally control more than $1 billion of funds from companies located around the world. Their history in asset management and security has been proven and recognized in the global financial industry and is the perfect choice for controlling our clients ’funds.

* Regulatory oversight

The CMC Capital brand is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") and as a European investment company, the CMC Capital broker is fully compliant with the instructions of the Financial Instrument Markets Directive (MiFID).

All regulated brokers are required to process all accounts and cash flows in accordance with strict financial reporting standards, including capital adequacy requirements. Every day, financial statements are presented to confirm that there is sufficient capital to cover all liabilities and to ensure that company funds are held separately from segregated client funds (in accordance with the procedures). The regulator and legal requirements monitor the maintenance of an adequate level of capital to cover all customer deposits, potential fluctuations in all open positions and non-operating expenses.

* Regulated liquidity providers

CMC Capital strictly cooperates with a regulated financial institution for trading, such as in the list of liquidity providers listed here, to be sure that the entire flow of the process of executing your orders is protected as much as possible.

* Modern technologies used in the account management area

When trading, CMC Capital understands that security and protection are key elements for customers. We guarantee that your personal data will always be strictly confidential and private.

Our client’s personal account allows customers to make instant replenishment and withdrawal requests, view account and trade histories and give access to trading reports.

Excess Insurance FSCS

CFDs are complex tools and there is a high risk of losing money.

* Customer funds individually covered up to £ 100,000,000

To date, any amount beyond the FSCS threshold of £ 50,000 could not be guaranteed in the event of insolvency. At present, CMC Capital is pleased to offer additional protection for its customers'funds beyond the threshold stipulated by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).

Signed by QBE Underwriting Limited and other participating syndicates at Lloyd's of London, this policy will now provide CMC Capital customers with protection for funds individually covered by up to £ 100,000,000 as standard.

* Do professional clients have the right to demand?

We are a member of the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). You may be entitled to claim compensation under this scheme if we cannot fulfill our obligations to you. This will depend on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim; Private individuals are generally protected. However, other types of claimants, such as businesses and charities, may be eligible depending on the type of claim.

* What is FSCS?

FSCS is the UK last resort compensation fund for clients of authorized financial services firms. Using the Standard Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), you fall under the "investment” claim category, which covers up to £ 50,000 per person per firm in the event of a broker default or insolvency.

* What is FSCS excess insurance?

FSCS typically provides protection up to £ 50,000, but what if our client’s assets exceed this threshold?

To cope with the fears of customers whose assets exceed the FSCS threshold, CMC Capital has acquired a new insurance product - Excess of FSCS Insurance. This policy provides protection for each customer, aggregates over the life of the policy, and is signed by Lloyds of London. This policy provided clients with assurance that their funds were protected above the provisions of the FSCS.

* How much insurance did CMC Capital buy?

CMC Capital acquired this policy on your behalf, at no direct cost to customers.

* Does it cost me anything?

CMC Capital acquired this policy on your behalf, at no direct cost to customers.

* Who signs this policy?

The policy is signed by QBE Underwriting Limited and other participating syndicates at Lloyd's of London.

* Who and what is covered?

All retail customers. For professional clients, this will depend on the type of business and the circumstances of the claim; Private individuals are generally protected. However, other types of claimants, such as businesses and charities, may be eligible depending on the type of claim.

* How it works?

If the unlikely event that a client’s assets are not fully recovered following CMC Capital’s insolvency occurs, additional coverage is provided to offer protection beyond the FSCS limit of GBP 50,000 per client.

The policy will be supported if the following reasons are met:

  • CMC Capital declared insolvent by FSCS
  • Detection of deficits in individual client assets of insolvent practitioners
  • FSCS pays the first £ 50,000 for each claim
