Core Spreads Offers Clients Solid Spread Betting Security

An independent spread betting firm is offering its clients financial peace of mind with a service designed to keep cash safe and secure. Core Spreads prides itself on its stringent approach to client fund security and has taken steps to ensure that when it comes to minimising financial risks, its custom-built strategy is unsurpassed.

A spokesman for Core Spreads says said, “Far too many people are missing out on the opportunities that spread betting offers due to a fear of the associated risks. We’re committed to putting an end to the stigma by offering every client exceptional investment security. This ensures that every client enjoys the complete peace of mind that their funds are 100% protected every step of the way.”

The UK is subject to some of the most stringent client money rules on the planet. Over time, this has helped to establish the UK’s reputation as a financially stable country which is extremely attractive to investors. Core Spreads understands its responsibility as a UK regulated firm and takes every step to ensure that client cash is safeguarded at every stage of investment. By default, every Core Spreads client automatically falls into the ‘Retail Investor’ client category. This offers the highest level of protection and ensures that every investor is protected from the word go.

After a client’s cash has been released, the firm holds money in segregated bank accounts at Barclays, one of the UK’s leading multinational banking and financial services companies. The use of such a trusted global name further contributes to the rigid security that every client is entitled to. Every Barclays account is kept ring-fenced from Core Spreads’ private funds and will never be used for any purpose not directly related to the client account. This includes both hedging and operational expenses.

Thanks to its affiliation with the UK’s Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), every Core Spreads client enjoys statutory protection from the UK’s leading independent compensation fund body. In the unlikely event that Core Spreads should fall into insolvency and experience a shortfall in segregation, FSCS guarantees funds up to £50,000. Clients enjoy an even better deal when it comes to third party failure, with FSCS offering up to £85,000 if the fund-holding bank goes into default.

To further safeguard client funds, Core Spreads has purposely sought out matched principal regulatory permissions, a statute that stops the firm from taking on positions against clients. This gives clients complete reassurance that their financial health will not be jeopardised by trading with rival entities. All principal risks are passed on to market counterparties which means that funds are held in an entity that does not take principal risk. This is a subtle promise yet one that sets Core Spreads apart from some of its competitors.

As well as exceptional fund protection, Core Spreads is committed to noise-free trading which cuts down on bells and whistles such as newsfeeds, analyst reports, trading tutorials and featured expert opinions. Instead, these marketing gimmicks are replaced with cost-effective spread betting strategies that deliver results. This directly contributes to distraction-free trading, a streamlined interface and the possibility of increased return-on-investment [RM1] for clients.
