Professional Client Status Details

You remain entitled to

We are not obliged to offer the following to Professional Clients but have elected to continue doing so:

Client money remains segregated from our funds and will be unaffected in the event of our insolvency.

Best Execution remains unchanged as we owe all our clients a duty of best execution.

The detail of Trade Confirmations remain unchanged and are sent by the end of the first business day following the execution of the trade, or earlier.

Key Information Documents remain available to you.

You lose the following

You will lose some FCA protections:

Margin and Leverage Limits remain unchanged despite the changes that ESMA introduce for retail clients.

Mandatory changes to product features which protect retail clients will not be mandatory for you. (e.g. negative balance protection and margin close out levels).

We will assume you have the relevant knowledge and experience levels to understand the risks in trading leveraged products.

We may use more sophisticated language when dealing with you as a Professional Client than we do with our retail clients.
