Spot Forex and MiFID
Investors Europe is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Services Commmission (www.fsc.gi) which is the FSA's equivalent in Gibraltar. Investors Europe is a Member of the Gibraltar Investors Compensation Scheme (www.gics.gi) which exists for the protection of client monies and client assets. These protections apply so long as the financial product being traded falls under MiFID legislation which, in fact, covers almost all tradable financial products including commodity and other derivatives such as freight, climate and carbon derivatives, but not Spot Forex. It is therefore important that you understand that amongst the financial instruments provided by investorseurope, as a MiFID regulated company is spot forex trading. This activity is outside the scope of MiFID and you would therefore not be considered to be dealing in financial instruments, as defined by MiFID, if you traded spot forex and would not be given the same protection afforded to MiFID instruments. In practical terms, this means that if you are trading spot forex with Investors Europe, your monies are only covered in transit to and from the spot forex trading platform. This is because Spot Forex has yet to be integrated into MiFID by European Law Makers.
