DRS Markets is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority No. 744943
The Financial Conduct Authority is a global leader in client protection and investment firm regulation.
The FCA enforces a rigid standard for financial regulation and ensures that investment firms under their jurisdiction protect individual clients and ensure their best interests are maintained. Under this benchmark only certain firms are able to obtain FCA authorisation after being vetted during a rigorous application process prior to approval, with continued monitoring to ensure adherence to strict rules
Safety of Funds
-Money deposited by clients is held in accordance with FCA rules
-Fund protection through the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)
Our clients (where applicable) qualify for FSCS protection. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is the UK’s compensation fund of last resort for customers of authorised financial services firms. If an FCA firm becomes insolvent or ceases trading, the FSCS may be able to pay compensation to its customers. The FSCS covers business conducted by firms authorised by the FCA. DRS Markets’ clients would fall under the ‘investments’ claim category, whereby the cover is £50,000 per person per firm. If a client held an account with an authorised FCA investment firm and there was a shortfall in segregation, they might still receive up to £50,000 in compensation. If DRS Markets went into liquidation, clients whose funds were held in segregated accounts would have their share of the segregated money pool returned, minus the administrators’ costs in handling and distributing these funds. If there was a shortfall then individuals may be eligible for compensation from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme
