We will hold these funds as trustee. As a result the approved bank or any other creditor of Henyep Capital Markets (UK) Limited will not be in a position to claim these funds in case of liquidation of Henyep Capital Markets (UK) Limited.

In accordance with CySEC rules, all client money for HYCM (Europe) is kept fully segregated from the Company’s own assets in an EEA-regulated credit institution. This ensures that clients’ funds are available for them at all times, and cannot be used by the Company for any purpose. As such the bank or any other creditor of HYCM will not be able to claim these funds in case of liquidation of HYCM (Europe) Ltd.

This also means that your funds and other assets will be segregated from Henyep Capital Markets (UK) Limited's, (Or HYCM (Europe’s), own money and will not be available to us for use in the course of our business. We may hold your money and the money of other clients in a pooled bank account.
