Can I withdraw my money to a different account?
We only return funds to the same account we have received the funds from. This is in line with our Anti-Money Laundering obligations. If your original account no longer exists, please contact a member of our Client Services team. We do not allow third-party payments to or from a client’s account.
Can I deposit money on my account from a third party?
No. We only accept payments from accounts with the same beneficiary name as that of the trading account. Payments received from an account in a different name than the trading account holder constitutes a third party deposit. This applies to Corporate funds received for an Individual account holder and vice-versa. Funds that constitute third party payment will be rejected and returned back to source immediately and your account could be closed.
Can I pay with cash or cheques?
No. We do not accept payments in form of cash or cheque. We can only accept payments by bank transfer or debit/credit cards.
My card has expired. What next?
