All British companies should adhere to the strict rules and procedures set by the UK Financial Supervisory Authority. They must keep all customer money separated from their funds into separate accounts. However, the company must report to the FCA regularly. In addition, they should have net fixed assets of at least EUR 730 000 to demonstrate their financial stability.
However, what is probably the most important in terms of the safety of funds invested in FCA regulated companies. There is a range of services related to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). In the case of a shortage, FSCS can cover investment losses, and that has limit up to £ 50,000.
