PROFESSIONAL TRADER VS RETAIL TRADER: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

Please read the following information carefully before applying for professional client status. We are not obliged to offer the following to Professional Clients but have elected to continue doing so:

1 Best Execution remains unchanged as we owe all our clients a duty of best execution.

2 Key Information Documents remain available to you.


Classifying as a Professional Client means you waive:

  • Professional Clients are not provided with the ‘’margin-close out protection’’, which solely applies to Retail Clients.
  • The eligibility for compensation from the Investor Compensation Fund

Important: You always have the right to request a different categorisation. At any time, you can request a higher level of protection by being categorised again as a retail client.

Please, fill the form below in order to be able to process your request
