As a client of CMC Markets, you may benefit from the protection offered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme ("FSCS"), in the event that CMC Markets become insolvent or cease trading.
The FSCS was created on 1 December 2001, when the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 came into force, and acts as a 'safety net'
for clients of authorised firms (i.e. FSA regulated financial services firms such as CMC Markets).
The FSCS is available when an authorised firm goes into default, and is unable or is likely to be unable to pay claims made against it by clients. For investment firms, the FSCS can pay up to £50,000 per client per firm.
Using the scheme does not cost you anything, but to qualify for compensation you need to be eligible within the FSCS rules. Generally,
the FSCS covers private individuals, as well as some small businesses.
Further information on the FSCS can be obtained from the FSCS website, www.fscs.org.uk or by calling the FSCS Helpline on
