Keeping clients’ assets safe is at the heart of everything we do. We fully comply with all relevant regulatory standards, including holding your money and assets in segregated accounts, and as an FCA authorised firm, clients’ assets are protected under the FSCS.
Confirmation of our Authorised status and protection under the FSCS can be found on the FCA register.
One of the ways that we safeguard client’s assets is to register stock into a separate nominee name (Freetrade Nominees Limited).
In the unlikely event of Freetrade Limited failing, liquidators are not permitted to use assets registered under the name of Freetrade Nominees Limited to cover any debts or liabilities.
This is standard market practise and mandatory under CASS rules (the principals to which Authorised firms must adhere).
All client assets are reconciled on a daily basis and our processes are independently audited by an external third party, PwC.
