FSA UK (now FCA UK) regulated Forex brokers




The list of FSA UK (now FCA UK) registered and regulated brokers:

Update: As of April 1, 2013 the FSA UK has become two separate regulatory authorities:

The Financial Conduct Authority (www.fca.org.uk) and The Prudential Regulation Authority (www.bankofengland.co.uk)
FCA Forex brokers FSA UK Forex brokers

FSA UK registry contains Authorised and EEA Authorised brokers.
As FCA UK takes over, it will now be maintaining the registry, however at this time it simply redirects to FSA UK website: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/register/home.do

Authorised

- is a FSA UK regulated broker. A firm that FSA UK has given permission to carry out regulated activities.

EEA Authorised

- is a broker that's been registered with FSA UK, but is regulated in its home country. The EEA Authorised status is given to firms that are authorised in another European Economic Area (EEA) state and been given a "passport" by FSA UK to provide cross border services to UK citizens according to MIFID. These firms are regulated in their home country, and not by FSA UK, although must comply with standards agreed across all EEA countries.

Note from FSA UK site, quote:
"Consumers considering or currently doing business with passported EEA firms ('EEA Authorised'), may wish to ask for further information from the firm or its UK branch about its complaints and compensation arrangements. This is because the position may differ compared to a UK authorised firm." Further reference: http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/Register/use/foreign_firms/index.shtml

About FSA (UK)

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) is an independent body, a single regulator of all providers of financial services in the United Kingdom. The FSA regulates most financial services markets, exchanges and firms. It sets the standards that must be met and can take action against firms if they fail to meet the required standards.
The Financial Services Authority regulates financial services in the UK since December 2001.

Requirements for FSA regulated brokers

Forex brokers regulated by the FSA are required to meet a number of industry standards and requirements, in particular:

  • Ensure about the quality of the bank in which clients funds will be held, and, more over, continue to monitor that quality to be
    able to fulfill own regulatory obligations. The bank must be approved by FSA.
  • Keep client funds separate from company funds, in other words, segregate clients’ deposits, which at no point can be treated
    and used as company assets including the situation when the company becomes insolvent.
  • Submit financial reports to the FSA on the regular basis and undergo detail annual audit etc.

What does this mean for a retail Forex trader?

In plain language, this means a higher protection of investments for any individual Forex trader.
By being obliged to keep client funds on a segregated account, a FSA regulated broker cannot use clients’ funds to cover own needs, expenses and risks as well as utilise those funds in case of the bankruptcy.
All money received form depositors are treated as "Client money" under FSA client money rules.
These rules form one of the most important parts of the UK financial regulatory system related to consumers - they protect consumers in the event of the failure of a FSA regulated company. If a FSA regulated company fails to meet its financial obligations, a liquidator would not be able to use clients’ money to meet claims of general creditors of the failed company. Clients’ funds can only be used to pay out compensation to clients who held deposits with that company.

Investors protection: the Compensation Scheme

Should the company go out of business and face liquidation, its clients are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) - the UK's statutory fund of last resort for customers of authorized financial services firms. This means that the FSCS can pay compensation if a firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay claims against it.

Concerning the Forex market, the compensation limits are set as follows:

Clients receive 100% the first £30,000 + 90% of the next £20,000, but no more than £48,000 in total.

You’ll find compensation limits on this of FSCS - Investment limits.
Another point, the FSA regulations do not require to open a separate segregated account for each client. It is enough to have one Client account for all investors, which will be fenced from the Company account. Concerning general clients’ funds protection there is no major difference. Large investors might be able to negotiate a separate segregated account under their name with Forex brokers on individual basis.

To check if a broker is registered with FSA UK use FSA Register.

Dear R Kearney,

no broker will allow your account to be funded by a third party, or withdrawn to a third party. I think FXDD mistakenly and unknowingly did that.
The Anti-Money laundering policy is very strict for all Forex brokers around the globe.

Yes, a Forex company can be incorporated in UK. I don't know the exact costs of incorporation in UK, but usually incorporation procedures are not costly at all.

Binary Options brokers in their general mass are not regulated. I haven't come across a FSA UK regulated binary broker.
We don't have a list of Binary Options brokers, but you can find them on other sites, for example: Binary Options Brokers (A-Z)


Frederick

Can a Forex company be incorporated in UK ( Forex licence is expensive there), instead go to NZ to be regulated. Is this allowed, if this will result in Uk customers not allowed to open accounts, it's ok.


BrokerGuru

July 29, 2012

Forex brokers who are only Registered (EEA Authorised) with FSA UK obtain the right to carry out operations in UK and solicit UK clients. They don't however obtain regulation from FSA UK and are rather regulated in their own countries. So, yes, when it comes to solving disputes, you won't be able to ask for much help from FSA UK nad you won't be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) in UK.


trader

July 28, 2012

Those brokers those are not Regulated but just Registered are not safe???? Admiral Makets is not a Regulated Broker but it's a Registered broker. So we are new people want to know is it safe for us?? Pls ans experts.

Thank you very much for the info, now I operate in Forex.
I am interested in working with CDFs and these companies (Master Polar and Syon Group) offered me their services.


BrokerGuru

July 13, 2012

Master Polar is not a broker. They offer graphs, news and reports elaborated by analysts from Reuters, Bloomberg and other.

Syon Group doesn't offer Forex trading, they have: CFDs, Futures and Options. They use PO Box as their address in BVI, while also mention a representation office in Panama.

Both companies are not regulated.


trader

July 12, 2012

Please some reference about http://syongroup.net or http://www.masterpolar.com, I need information from these sites are reliable?.
In any case, where I can find out about them.

Yes,

Scread Co is a spread betting and CFD broker, thus doesn't have reviews on Forex sites. Most likely there should be some feedback online on other sites and forums.
