Trusted Trading Partner

Find out why Trade UK Limited is a trading partner you can trust.

Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Trade UK Limited is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom by the Financial Conduct Authority (Firm Reference Number: 622897).

Your Money

As a retail client, your money is held in a segregated bank account in accordance with FCA client money rules. This means that your funds are held in trust (with you as the beneficiary) completely separately from Trade UK’s funds. In the unlikely event that Trade UK became insolvent, your money could never be treated as a recoverable asset by our general creditors. When we receive retail client funds, the money is deposited directly into a segregated client account and will only be withdrawn under a client’s direct instruction or in settlement for trading activities.

The segregation of our retail client funds is managed on a daily basis by our dedicated Finance Team and monitored in-house by our Compliance Department. Client money procedures are audited by our statutory external auditors and by our parent company’s internal audit team. You can be sure that any funds you hold with us are held securely. Trade UK selects the banks that hold its retail client funds with great care. Only top tier institutions are chosen, and before a bank can be selected, a formal due diligence and risk assessment procedure is carried out. Banks are monitored on an ongoing basis and regularly reviewed to ensure that they continue to meet with FCA regulatory requirements and Trade UK’s own internal standards.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme

Further details can be found in our Complaints Handling Summary Policy and on the FSCS official website.
