Retail clients funds are housed in segregated accounts at top global banks. As a CySEC regulated entity, FXCM adheres to the CySEC's Directive DI87-01 for the Safeguarding of Financial Instruments and Funds belonging to clients. FXCM complies with the regulatory obligation to segregate Client Money, in accordance with CySEC Rules, from its own money to avoid the risk of utilising such funds for its own account, as well as the requirement to act honestly, fairly and professionally, in accordance with the clients' best interests when structuring its business so that obligations under client money rules are not impacted.
Investor Compensation Fund
FXCM participates in the Investor Compensation Fund ("ICF") for clients of Investment Firms regulated in the Republic of Cyprus. The purpose of the ICF is to secure the claims of the covered clients against companies through the payment of compensation.
For more information regarding compensation, please review FXCM's Investor Compensation Fund Policy.
In cooperation with Lloyd's of London we are happy to offer an extra level of security to our retail clients. In addition to the ICF protection, this insurance protects clients' funds up to € 1 000 000 per client – without any extra costs for you.
