All of our clients’ money is held in a client money bank account with HSBC and protected in accordance with the FCA’s client money rules.
Once your shares have been purchased, they are held by our custodian on your behalf in accordance with the FCA’s client asset rules and you remain the beneficial owner of your investment. Your cash and investments are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme which means that even if we, HSBC or our custodian went into administration you are entitled to protection.
