What are the benefits of trading with a regulated company?

One of the benefits of trading with a regulated company is that you know you are contracting with a reliable and reputable provider in a secure environment, which has strict rules and guidelines in place, protecting the interests of retail clients. Other legal obligations of a regulated company include, but are not limited to, ensuring financial services are provided efficiently, honestly and fairly, dealing with retail client money in a certain way and having dispute resolutions systems in place in case you are unsatisfied with our services.

However, please note that regulation is not an absolute guarantee of security or reliability. Additionally, being regulated does not change that investing in CFDs and Margin FX products carries a high degree of risk, and you may lose substantially more than you invest.
