The protection of client money is of fundamental importance to us. Therefore all client funds are held in a segregated bank account and separate from House of Borse’s own money.
Protecting Client Funds
Client funds are held in a separate bank account and held in trust to safeguard them against counterparty default. As good practice - in providing further transparency - the funds are not mixed with House of Borse funds.
Where Are My Funds Held?
House of Borse uses several major banking institutions, which includes Barclays Bank PLC and Citibank. Client funds are only kept in jurisdictions where segregation of client funds is supported by the local legal framework.
What Happens to My Funds?
Funds transferred by clients to House of Borse will be received directly into a segregated client bank account at Barclays bank PLC.
The protection of client money is of fundamental importance to us and a governance structure is in place to ensure ongoing compliance and an appropriate level of protection is afforded to client money.
The company has comprehensive client money processes and procedures in place to ensure client money is identified and protected at the earliest possible point after receipt as well as governance structures which ensure such activities are effective in providing the maximum protection for client money.
