REGULATIONS

If you have a trading account with any of our European offices, your account is held with CMC Markets in the UK, and the following may be applicable to you

Key points:

  • Retail client money is held in segregated client bank accounts
  • Money held on behalf of clients is distributed across a range of major banks which are regularly assessed against CMC Markets’ risk criteria
  • CMC Markets does not lodge retail client money towards margins with its hedging counterparties
  • CMC Markets UK Plc is regulated by the FCA, registration number 173730

CMC Markets is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority in the UK (FCA) which means we must comply with FCA client assets regulation, known as CASS. When you open an account with CMC Markets you are classed as a retail client, unless you receive notification of another status and explicitly consent to ‘title transfer’ of your funds to CMC Markets. Retail client money is held separately from CMC Markets’ own funds so that under property, trust and insolvency law, client money is protected and therefore unavailable to general creditors of the firm, if the firm fails.

Where does CMC Markets hold segregated client money? European retail clients’ funds are pooled together and accordingly the treatment of funds across our European branches is the same. We hold retail client funds in segregated bank accounts with UK banks which include Natwest, Barclays, Lloyds and HSBC, and outside the UK with Ulster Bank in Ireland, Deutsche Bank in Germany, and HSBC in Poland and Spain. This means that your money may not necessarily be held in your country of residence, and that UK rules will apply to all European client money.

RELIABILITY

Founded in 1989, CMC Markets (LSE: CMCX) has grown to become one of the leading retail forex and CFD brokerages, offering nearly 10,000 CFD instruments across major asset classes including forex, commodities, and securities markets. In 2016, CMC Markets was listed on the London Stock Exchange under the ticker CMCX, with an initial valuation of $1 billion, making it one of the largest technology IPOs of the year. CMC Markets offers its Next Generation trading platform as a web-based platform that is also available as a mobile app for Android and iPhone/iPad devices. CMC Markets serves over 60,000 clients worldwide through its 15 offices globally and across its entities regulated in the UK, Canada, and Australia.

CMC Markets is a great choice for Forex and CFD traders as the company’s Next Generation platform is powerful and versatile with plenty of configuration options and tools for traders to customize the platform to meet their needs.

CMC Markets Review:

In terms of FX product offering, CMC Markets offers the largest selection of forex pairs, with over 183 pairs available, making its pricing attractive across an extensive range of currency pairs, compared to most brokers who offer only the most popular forex pairs. Compared to my 2017 review, CMC Markets maintained its position but hasn’t built on it further. For example, several of its peers improved their offerings by revamping their mobile apps, shifting to HTML5 on their web platforms, and launching Cryptocurrency CFDs on Bitcoin and Ethereum. Close competitors to CMC Markets in terms of product offering, range of markets, and minimum deposit to open a live account, include IG Markets, XTB, and City Index. Nonetheless, with nearly 10,000 instruments to choose from across nearly every asset class and global market, CMC Markets is a great choice for traders looking for a multi-asset solution and broad range CFDs and forex pairs at competitive prices and with a low minimum deposit to open a live account.
