Who are you regulated by?
In the UK, we are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) under FRN 629628.
In Australia, ThinkMarkets is regulated by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and is the holder of Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) number 424700.
As a regulated FX broker, we are regularly audited. Therefore we continually maintain high standards to provide you with the peace of mind when trading with us.
Where are my funds held?
As detailed in ASIC Benchmark Five (Australian accounts), and in line with FCA requirements (UK accounts), we segregate all client funds in a separate account from our own operating funds. We only keep client funds in top-tier banks, such as Barclays Bank, National Australia Bank and Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
What is your Anti-Money Laundering policy?
Our A policy ensures that we comply with the anti-money laundering framework set forth by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the rules of our regulators. In order to prevent money laundering conducted by individuals and organisations, we have structured and strict guidelines put in place. For a summary of our AML policy, click here
How can I check that a company holds an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) or is authorised to represent an AFSL?
You can check online at ASIC via a professional registry search.
You can search by Company or AFSL number.
For example -

Any company not listed on the Professional register is not permitted to offer financial services in Australia.
