Your funds are secure

When you deposit money with our platform provider IG group, it is protected in a number of ways.

Call  020 7638 6996  or email  to discuss opening a trading account.

Your money and assets

Your money is held in segregated (independent trust) accounts at regulated banks. 

Your funds are ring-fenced from creditors.

Your money and assets are never merged with our platform provider's or our own money or assets.  

Your assets are held by a custodian in segregated (nominee) client asset accounts.

What happens to my money and assets?

Unlike banks, investment firms are required to separate client money and assets from their own resources. This means that your funds and assets cannot be used in the course for any business activities, and that client money and assets are completely ring-fenced and protected in the unlikely event of insolvency.

The only clients whose money and assets aren’t treated like this are professional clients (such as other financial firms), or eligible counterparties who have signed a legal document explaining how their money and assets are held differently (this is known as ‘title transfer’).

Spread bets and CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 75% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading spread bets and CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how spread bets and CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. Professional clients can lose more than they deposit.


All trading involves risk.

The value of shares, ETFs and ETCs bought through a share dealing account, a stocks and shares ISA or a SIPP can fall as well as rise, which could mean getting back less than you originally put in. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
