All clients’ funds are kept separately in segregated bank accounts and are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, FSCS (Trading 212 UK Ltd.). In this case, as an investor you will be able to claim under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), which can pay up to £85 000. If you are a resident of another country outside the UK, you'll still be able to claim under the FSCS Compensation Scheme, as long as you are a client under the entity of "Trading 212 Ltd.".
A few notes to take into account:
- Trading 212 has been profitable every single year since its founding 16 years ago.
- We have no debt.
- We have solid cash reserves
- It’s very cost-effective for us to offer free share dealing because over the years we’ve already invested a lot in infrastructure and platform development for our CFD business.
- Our existence does not depend on VC funding or crowdfunding.
