Capital Index receives regulatory approval from the UK’s FCA


The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) grants Capital Index (UK) Ltd authorised and regulated status.

Capital Index (UK) Ltd, a global online brokerage specialising in CFDs, Financial Spread Betting and Spread Trading, has announced today that it has been granted authorised status by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to provide regulated products and services. Commenting on this important announcement, Rob Woolfe Group CEO states;

“Our international customer base includes a large number of CFD and Financial Spread Betting clients from the UK. The UK market is and will always be a very important market for us as it is for many of our international competitors. However, what now sets us apart from the vast majority of other CFD and FX providers is that we have gone that extra mile, becoming fully authorised and regulated by the FCA. Not only does this give extra protection for the clients of Capital Index (UK) Ltd, being regulated by the FCA is an important sign of trust that will assist us when entering new international markets in the near future. Clearly, having one of the worlds most respected regulatory organisations grant you a licence shows just how much hard work we have put in to making sure we are operating at the highest level”

He continues;

“The Group’s core philosophy is to have the integrity and professionalism to do the right things, at the right time, in the right way whether that is in customer servicing, trade execution or in the systems and controls we put in place to manage our operations. Pushing ourselves to be regulated not just by one but two respected regulators is a reflection of that core belief”.
