All trading involves risk. Losses can exceed deposits.

What happens to my money if one of the banks IG uses to hold client money goes into liquidation?

As all deposits lodged with us are held on trust for you in a regulated trust account, in such circumstances those deposits would attract all the legal protections afforded to trust money.

Net unrealised running profits are also held in trust by us (in excess of our regulatory requirements) and would normally be similarly protected for your benefit as beneficial owner. Please see our PDS for further information.
