Client Funds held in Barclays Client Account

Where we are required to segregate your funds, we do so by placing the funds in a segregated account (known as a ‘safeguarding account’) at Barclays Bank PLC.

As an FCA Authorised Payment Institution, we are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Instead, where we have segregated your funds in a safeguarding account, it means those funds would be separated from our other assets in the event of our insolvency and used to repay you and other clients.

Barclays Bank PLC provides us with safeguarding account(s), but does not monitor the funds we place on the safeguarding account or how we operate these accounts. As an FCA Authorised Payment Institution it is our responsibility to segregate funds.

Data Protection

We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (No. PZ8997024) under the Data Protection Act 2018.

We understand that the privacy of your personal information is important. We will keep your data safe and not share it with anyone else to be used for marketing, promotional or other purposes.

Any information you provide will be used in accordance with our privacy policy which you can find here

Online Security a very high Priority
