Easy Forex Trading Ltd, regulated by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC), has the obligation under EU Investment law (MiFID) to protect client interests. As a result, the Company has taken all necessary measures to protect client funds:
Segregation of fundsClient funds are received in the company’s fiduciary segregated client bank accounts. These funds are off balance sheet and cannot be used to pay back creditors in the unlikely event of default of the Company.
Bank accountsThe Company maintains operational and client bank accounts with reputable EU banking institutions.
Investor Compensation Fund (ICF)The ICF is the compensation fund of last resort for customers of authorized financial services firms. If the Company becomes insolvent or ceases trading, it is able to pay compensation to its customers. The actual level of compensation you receive will depend on the basis of your claim.
Supervision by the RegulatorRegulated firms are obliged to meet strict financial standards, including capital adequacy requirements. Easy Forex Trading Ltd is required to submit financial reports to the regulator on a monthly basis; therefore we are required by law to maintain sufficient liquid capital to cover all client deposits, potential fluctuations in the company’s currency positions and outstanding expenses. A detailed annual audit performed by an independent internal auditor informs the regulator of any deficiencies.
Risk ManagementThe Company continually identifies, assesses, monitors and controls each type of risk associated with its operations. More specifically, when managing risks, the responsibilities of Senior Management are as follows:
- Assess on a continuous basis the effectiveness of the policies, arrangements and procedures in place;
- Decide on the Company’s risk bearing capability and strategy;
- Review the Risk Assessment Report carried out by the Risk Management Department and take appropriate action where necessary; and
- Ensure that the Company has the ability to cover its financial needs and capital requirement at any time.
