CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your deposits, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

Why do I need to verify my card or bank account?

Just like a bank, we are a financial services firm required to comply with anti-money laundering laws and regulation. In order to comply we may ask you, at times, to provide further documentation to help with the verification of your payment card and/or bank account. This is so that we can ensure that the source and destination of your funds are in your name.
