Safety of your funds
In accordance with Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”) regulation, all client money* received by CCCUK will be ring-fenced in segregated accounts, and are therefore entirely separate from funds used to operate the firm. In the unlikely event of a default, rest assured client funds will be returned directly to your bank account rather than being treated as a recoverable asset by general creditors. All money held on behalf of clients is held in accounts with highly regulated banks with a global presence.
As a firm authorised and regulated by the FCA, clients of CCCUK are automatically protected by The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). Customers of CCCUK would be eligible to make a claim to the FSCS for compensation up to a maximum of £85,000, in the unlikely event of the firm becoming insolvent.
*Only for clients of Retail classification. Clients of Professional or Eligible Counterparty classification are not protected by Client Money rules.
