Is my money covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme?
If we’re unable to meet some of our liabilities and you make a valid claim, you may be entitled to compensation from the FSCS, depending on the type of business and circumstances of the claim.
Most types of investment business are covered for 100% of the first £50,000 per person per firm. The FSCS does not cover any fall in the market value of investments that have been incurred.
