Client Money General
The FCA rules are designed to protect you in the event that an insurance intermediary fails or is unable to transfer:
  • Any premium money it has received from you to the insurer; or
  • Any claims or return premium monies that it has received from the insurer to you.
We are governed by strict rules pertaining to Client Money, set down by the FCA. Where we hold monies in a client bank account we may earn interest on monies held, which will be retained by us. We will hold client money separate from our own money with an approved bank, segregated in a client bank account designated as subject to a Statutory Trust. We act as Trustees of our clients’ monies and must meet certain legal and regulatory conditions.
