As an FCA Authorised Payment Institution it is our responsibility to segregate funds. Where we are required to segregate your funds. We do this by placing the funds in a segregated account (known as a "safeguarding account") at Barclays Bank PLC.

We are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. Instead, where we have segregated your funds in a safeguarding account, it means those funds would be separated from our other assets in the event of our insolvency and used to repay you and other clients.

Barclays Bank PLC provides us with safeguarding account(s), but does not monitor the funds we place in them or how we operate these accounts.
