CMC Markets is authorised and regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and complies with Singapore's Securities & Futures Act (SFA) to ensure all client funds are protected. As such, CMC Markets clearly distinguishes client money from its own by holding such funds in segregated client bank accounts. Segregation of client money in this way ensures that in the event of CMC Markets becoming insolvent, funds held in these accounts will be returned to clients.
As a customer of CMC Markets all of your funds on deposit with us are held in segregated trust accounts with banks licensed in Singapore under the Singapore Banking Act (Cap. 19) and are maintained and operated in accordance with the segregation requirements under the Singapore's Securities & Futures Act (SFA). We do not use client money to hedge our positions or to meet the trading obligations of other customers. This offers you financial security and you can rest assured that your money with us is protected.
What would happen to my money in the event of CMC Markets' liquidation?
In the event of CMC Markets’ liquidation (primary pooling), clients whose funds are held in segregated client bank accounts would have their share of the segregated money pool returned.
