ActivTrades is a member of FSCS, an arrangement that provides security for clients’ funds besides ActivTrades’ already effective and strong internal policies around fund safety. Further to the FSCS** protection, ActivTrades provides extra security by covering clients’ funds individually up to £500,000. This excess of FSCS insurance comes as standard, at no cost to ActivTrades clients.

In addition, we offer balance protection that ensures trading losses do not exceed your deposit. The Balance Protection Policy comes into force when your account goes into negative due to trading activity, and will result in your account being credited to a zero balance.
