Important to note
Please be aware that if you choose to register as a Professional trader with any CFD provider, you will lose the protections afforded to clients classified as ‘Retail’ under FCA rules. The main protections you will lose are:
Negative Balance Protection – you will be responsible for keeping your account balance positive and you could lose more than the sum you have invested
Leverage – by gaining access to higher leverage you risk magnifying your losses
Communication – we will use more sophisticated language when promoting our products and we will not be required to provide you with the standardised risk warning we provide to ‘Retail’ clients
Best Execution – the factors we consider when determining the delivery of Best Execution may differ between Retail and Professional clients
Products – we will assess how appropriate a product is based on your knowledge and experience
You can still trade over the markets on our award-winning platform with a retail account, with the added bonus of negative balance protection.
