Security of funds

Industry standard is not good enough — instead, we strive to deliver “ThinkMarkets security of funds.” 

 
 

Here's what we do to provide superior safety

Throughout the financial services industry, there are stringent requirements to keep clients’ money secure. Most brokers adopt an industry-standard approach to protecting your money, but here at ThinkMarkets we go above and beyond to ensure your money is as safe as possible.

See what most clients expect from their brokers, and what we do in addition to provide a superior, premium service:

Regulation

Clients expect their broker to be regulated by an appropriate regulatory authority

ASIC and FCA Regulation

We are registered with the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC), and are the holder of Australian Financial Services Licence number 424700.
 

We are also authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and provide regular financial reports to the FCA in addition to being audited annually. FCA Number: 629628

 

No balance protection

In the case of rapid market movements, a position with a broker that does not offer negative balance protection could lead to losses that exceed your deposits.

Segregated funds

All client funds are required to be held in bank accounts segregated from the firm’s own funds, with daily fund reconciliation.

Top-tier banking partners

To further enhance security, all of our clients’ funds are segregated from our own funds in carefully selected top-tier Australian banks, including CBA and NAB.

 
 
 

Negative balance protection available

At ThinkMarkets, we have implemented an additional risk management policy that prevents your account from going below zero. This is known as negative balance protection. Find out more here.
