ActivTrades Representative
Leading global CFD provider, ActivTrades, has introduced a brand-new profile designed for its experienced client base, The ActivTrades Professional Client profile. The new account type will allow Elective Professional Clients to keep, post ESMA, a leverage up to 1:400, whilst still benefitting from the award-winning safeguards associated with ActivTrades.

ActivTrades’ Safeguards:

• Enhanced insurance as excess of the FSCS insurance up to £1 million
Negative balance protection, meaning client accounts never fall below zero
• Funds kept in a segregated account at all times

Prospective clients who would like to open a Professional Account must of course meet the criteria stipulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) under COBS 3.5.3.

Alex Pusco, CEO of ActivTrades, said: “Client safety continues to be at the center of our operations and we welcome regulatory changes that endeavor to make the industry a safer environment for traders.”

“Our new Professional Account will provide experienced traders greater flexibility in the markets, by allowing them to keep a leverage up to 1:400 after ESMA’s proposed changes take effect.

“Best of all, clients have added assurances from our truly excellent client protection as well as a dedicated account representative to assist them along their trading journey.”

The Professional Account enables clients to trade all of ActivTrades’ products including Forex, ETFs, Cryptocurrencies, Indices and Commodities, on CFDs and Spread Betting, using MetaTrader 4, 5 and ActivTrades very own intuitive platform, ActivTrader.
