You are responsible for choosing which CMC office and account best suits your needs. If you apply for an account with a non-UK/non-European office this will be under the relevant terms of business for that office, which will be governed by the laws of that country.

You will lose all UK/EU regulatory protections, such as lower leverage and negative balance protection, and you may lose some UK consumer protections, although alternatives may still be available. You will have the right to escalate a complaint to the relevant country’s ombudsman. Your funds will not be covered by the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme, although alternatives may still be available (see details above).

The information on this website is not directed at residents of the United States, Belgium or any other country outside the UK.
