Important to note
Please be aware that if you choose to register as a Professional trader with any spread betting or 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 will only be treated as Professional if we are comfortable you have the relevant expertise, experience and knowledge considering the high risk nature of our products.
