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

Banks are selected only following a full risk assessment, to ensure that they meet the requirements of IG’s own policy on banks holding client money. All selected banks are monitored on an on-going basis.

In the event that a Singapore-based bank defaults, clients’ moneys held in the trust account will be treated as a liability of the Singapore bank and dealt with in accordance with applicable Singapore laws and regulations.
