The security of your money is a priority. All retail client money is held in segregated client money bank accounts.
REGULATION AND LICENCE
Stratos Markets Limited is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA"), registration number 217689.
CLIENT MONEY SEGREGATION
As FXCM is regulated by the FCA, we are obliged to follow the client money rules in the FCA's Client Assets Sourcebook ("CASS"). The CASS rules require FXCM to ensure a clear segregation between Client Money (as defined in CASS) and money that belongs to the firm. Client Money is held on trust for clients in segregated client money bank accounts. FXCM exercises all due skill, care and diligence in the selection, appointment and periodic review of the credit institutions where Client Money is held.
CLIENT MONEY SECURITY
FXCM also have strict capital requirements specified by the FCA. However, in the unlikely event of FXCM insolvency, Client Money is not available to FXCM's creditors. If we are unable to satisfy repayment claims, eligible claimants have the right to compensation by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, up to £85,000.
