The Protection
of Your Funds

Your Funds are Safe with Vantage

When you open a trading account with Vantage, we can assure you that your funds are in safe hands. There are a number of measures we implement so our clients put their trust in us to keep their money protected.

Your money is held separately from Vantage’s own funds. Therefore under property, trust and insolvency law, your money is protected and unavailable to creditors of the firm, if the firm were ever to go into liquidation.

FSCS Protected

Vantage is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The FCA enforces strict client money and client asset rules which govern exactly what Vantage can do and how we must do it.

Funds lost as a result of liquidation, up to an amount of £85,000, will be compensated for under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS acts as a ‘safety net’ for clients of FCA regulated firms, such as Vantage.


Excess of
FSCS Insurance

Vantage have partnered with Lloyds of London to implement Excess of FSCS Insurance, making Vantage one of the only brokerages to provide up to £1 million in fund compensation and protection.

Our Excess of FSCS Insurance provides clients with an additional layer of protection beyond the £85,000 FSCS fund protection, 
up to the value of £1,000,000.

We have enabled our clients to have complete peace of mind that the entirety of their funds are secure with Vantage.


Segregated Trust Accounts

Your funds are kept in segregated Trust accounts with NatWest and Barclays, two of the UK's leading Big Four clearing banks.

In doing so, we ensure that funds remain easily identifiable as 'client money' and that Vantage and its creditors will never have any charge or retention over it.
