Financial Security

When you trade with Admiral Markets, you’re protected by our robust financial security arrangements and customer care policies.

Segregation of client funds

In accordance with FCA rules, all client money is kept fully segregated from our own assets in an EEA-regulated credit institution. This ensures that clients’ funds are available for them at all times, and cannot be used by us for any purpose. These arrangements are checked and verified by our auditors.

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)

In the unlikely event that we get into financial difficulty, and there was a shortfall in segregated client funds, an individual or small company may be eligible to be compensated by the FSCS https://www.fscs.org.uk/ . The compensation amount is up to £50,000.

If the bank which is used to hold segregated client money goes into liquidation, any losses would be shared by clients in proportion to their share of the total amount held with the failed bank. Any funds lost as a result of this would be covered by the FSCS up to a limit of £50,000 per client.

Negative Balance Protection

We compensate account deficits for Professional Clients in accordance with our Negative Balance Protection Policy, covering up to £50,000 per client. Our Retail Clients have full and unconditional protection from account deficits and are covered on per-account basis with no limits to maximum payout.
