PROTECTING CLIENTS FUNDS
Segregation of funds
All client funds deposited with iFXOPTION are fully segregated from the company’s own funds and are kept in separate bank accounts. This ensures that funds belonging to clients cannot be used for any other purpose. Our financial reports are audited by PWC, a leading global financial auditor, ensuring that our operations are conducted to the highest possible standards.
iFXOPTION is a member of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and iFXOPTION Financial Services Limited is a member of the Investor Compensation Fund (ICF). Eligibility depends on the status and the nature of the claim. Please refer to our legal documentation and compensation policy for further details.
Additional measures we take
iFXOPTION is partnered with several major banking institutions, with client funds kept in banks such as Barclays Bank PLC, Julius Baer, and Royal Bank of Scotland. Internal limits ensure a diversification of client funds among banks, while credit risk is regularly monitored. Client funds are only kept in jurisdictions where segregation of client funds is supported by the local legal framework.
iFXOPTION offers Negative Balance Protection guarantee to all clients as part of the Client Agreement, as long as it is not manipulated and is accepted in good faith. We are committed to a strict policy ensuring that clients may never lose more than their total deposits.
