Security of funds

There’s industry-standard security of funds, and then there’s ThinkMarkets security of funds

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.

Here’s 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.

FCA Regulation

We’re 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

Financial Services Compensation Scheme Protection

The FSCS is the UK's compensation fund of last resort for customers of authorised financial services firms. With the standard Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) you are covered under the ‘investments’ claim category, whereby the cover is up to £50,000 per person per firm in case of a brokers default or insolvency.

£1m insurance protection in excess
of FSCS

At no extra cost to clients of ThinkMarkets, we have purchased insurance protection which protects eligible clients for up to £1m over any claim with the FSCS in the event of our default or insolvency.
