If the complaint does not fall within the rules of AFCA, you may request us to submit the complaint to arbitration.

If we do not agree to your request, you may not submit the dispute or difference to arbitration, although you may commence legal proceedings against us, in which case you agree to submit the dispute or difference to the courts of New South Wales, Australia.

To the maximum extent permitted by law, any dispute or difference whatsoever raised by you in connection with our FSG, PDS, Terms and Conditions or other relevant documents ('CMC Markets Documents') and our products must be dealt with in Australia as described above.
