No, as a professional client you will not get the same protections afforded to retail clients when using CMC Pro.
Risk warnings: CMC Markets will not be required to provide you with the current risk warnings we must provide to retail
Communications and financial promotions: Certain FCA (or equivalent) rules relating to the form and content of information
provided by CMC Markets do not apply, including those relating to communications and financial promotions.
Negative balance protection: Retail clients benefit from negative balance protection, meaning that their losses cannot exceed
deposits. This functionality is not available to professional clients.
Leverage restrictions: CMC Markets is required to restrict leverage to between 30:1 and 2:1 on the products we offer to retail
clients. Higher leverage can work against investors and amplify losses.
Financial Ombudsman Service (or equivalent): Access to the Financial Ombudsman Service (the “FOS”) will not extend to all
professional clients (only those that meet the FCA handbook definition of a consumer) and may therefore not extend to you. The FOS is an
independent service for settling disputes between FCA-regulated firms and eligible complainants. If you are not sure whether you will be
entitled to refer your complaint to FOS, we suggest you contact FOS directly.
