If you’re an experienced trader, you may qualify as a Professional Client

Flex greater trading power as a Professional Client with FXTM thanks to higher leverage and lower margin requirements. Professional Clients have the knowledge and experience to make trading decisions for themselves. Because of this, they have a more nuanced understanding of risk and reward and, as such, can trade with fewer restrictions than our Retail Clients can.

However, this means that some protections will not apply to them.

As a Professional Client some of the benefits you will enjoy are:

Leverage

Utilise up to 1:300 of leverage, 10X higher compared to Retail Clients.

Lower Margins

As a pro client, you are granted our lowest margin rates – from 0.3%.

Promotions

Exclusive access FXTM’s exceptional promotions, like our competitive
Loyalty Program (T&Cs apply)

Protection

Your funds are segregated from FXTM’s operational funds, and secured by Negative Balance Protection.

Classifying as a Professional Client means you waive

  • Best Execution policies
  • Our obligation to inform you about income payable to FXTM (e.g. costs, commissions and fees)
  • Our obligation to provide you with written risk warnings in regards to complex financial instruments (like CFDs)
  • Our obligation to comply with relevant legislation relating to marketing communication

Please make sure you are familiar with our full terms and conditions before you decide to apply for reclassification.
