INVESTOR COMPENSATION FUND

  • General Outline of the Investor Compensation Fund

    FX Central Clearing Ltd. (License No. CIF 121/10) is a member of the Investor Compensation Fund (ICF), set up by the Central Bank of Cyprus and the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySec) for clients of Cyprus Investment Firms (CIFs).

    The Investor Compensation Fund was established to secure the claims of covered clients against a CIF through the payment of compensation in the event that the CIF in question was unable to:

    • return to covered Clients funds owed to them or funds which belong to them but are held by the CIF in the context of providing investment services to the said Clients or
    • hand over to covered Clients financial instruments which belong to them and which the CIF concerned holds, manages or keeps on their account.

    Membership of the ICF ensures that clients of FXCC can claim compensation in the event that FXCC is unable to compensate its clients for a claim.

    This provides FXCC clients with an extra measure of insurance for their funds.

    The ICF does not cover Institutional or Professional investors but only retail Clients of FXCC.

    Under the Rules and Regulations of the ICF, the total payable compensation to each covered Client may not exceed €20.000, irrespective of the number of accounts held, currency and place of offering the investment service.
