SEGREGATED CLIENT
FUNDS AND FCA REGULATION 

 
Protect your clients. Ensure their funds ("client money") are in segregated bank accounts.

Ensure the environment is regulated. A retail investor initiative.

  
Why do you need your broker to operate segregated client accounts?
  

  • It is a major responsibility to handle or hold clients' cash assets.
  • INFINOX has segregated bank accounts to hold clients' money.
  • This ring-fenced and segregated clients' money from the day to day operations of the brokerage.
  • It means that customers can withdraw their funds when they so choose.

  
Why should your broker be regulated and authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)?

  • Financial markets need to be honest, fair and effective so that customers get a fair deal.
  • The FCA's aim is to make markets work well, and the FCA does this by regulating the conduct of more than 56,000 businesses.*
  • The FCA is responsible for regulating a sector which plays a critical role in our lives and without which the modern economy could not function – how well financial markets work has a fundamental impact on us all
  • The UK financial services employ over 2.2 million people and contribute £65.6bn in tax to the UK economy. If UK markets work well, competitively and fairly, they maintain confidence in the UK as a major global financial hub. The FCA's role is to help ensure this happens.

  • - Protect consumers – the FCA secures an appropriate degree of protection for consumers.
