Is my money safe?

Your money is held in client segregated accounts with Barclays (UK).

Funds in a segregated account are NOT mixed with our company funds, which insures you in the hypothetical event of Tradeslide Trading Tech´s insolvency. Client monies are monitored per the FCA´s CASS regime, which requires us to reconcile outstanding balances daily and report any discrepancy.

Further, your investment with Darwinex [qualifies under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)] (, which currently protects you from insolvency of the broker with a compensation of up to GBP 50,000 per person and broker and from insolvency of the bank with a compensation of up to GBP 75,000 per person and bank.


Insurance is not paid to “professionals”. If I have Darwin with investors, then, in the opinion of the FCA / FSCS, will I be considered a “professional”?


No, you won’t.

All our clients are treated as retail clients, as you can read on our client categorisation notice.
