Funds Security

Following CySEC strict rules, IGM Forex Ltd keeps client funds with Tier-1 banks in segregated accounts, thereby safeguarding against their use for any other purpose. In the unlikely event of liquidation, segregated funds cannot be used to pay creditors and must be returned to clients directly. Therefore, rest assured that all clients’ funds are intact with us

Negative Balance Protection

As per CySEC National Product Intervention Measures (“NPIMs”), the Company adopts a negative balance protection per-account basis, so that retail clients cannot lose more than the total funds in their trading account. The purpose of negative balance protection is to ensure that an investor’s maximum loss from trading CFDs, including all related costs, are limited to the total funds related to trading CFDs that are in the investor’s CFD trading account. This should include any funds yet to be paid into that account due to net profits from the closure of open CFDs connected to that account. An investor should not incur any additional liability connected with its trading of CFDs. Other accounts should not be part of the investor’s capital at risk.

IGM Forex Ltd applies Negative Balance Protection to its retail clients.

Investor Compensation Fund

IGM Forex Ltd is a member of the Investor Compensation Fund, (ICF) a scheme which aims to protect eligible retail clients and compensate them if the company is unable to return funds and financial instruments belonging to those clients, due to financial problems, as applicable.
