Spread betting client money protection


If you are classified as a retail client any money we hold on your behalf, which includes; cash deposited with us, winnings, the valuation of any open bets – even uncleared cheques, will all be held in a segregated Barclays bank account in accordance with the FCA client money rules.

All funds held on this designated client money account are held by Spreadex as trustee. If you are a retail client, under no circumstances will we use any of your own money with our own funds or place such funds with a third party e.g. a broker.

If you are unclear about your client classification or any aspect of the client money rules please do not hesitate to contact us.
