Fund Safety 

Safety of clients’ funds is one of our utmost priorities and we have a number of systems and procedures in place to make sure that the money you invest with us is not at risk.

  • Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)

All clients’ funds that are held by AETOS Capital Group (UK) Limited comply with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Client Money Rules. This means that clients’ funds are in a segregated bank account separated away from the company’s operating funds. 

  • Segregation Of Clients’ Funds

All of our clients’ funds are safely held at top tier banks and because of this we can ensure that all of our clients’ funds are separated away from the company’s accounts. This segregation process securely protects our clients’ funds from being used for anything other than our client’s own use. In the event of AETOS Capital Group (UK) Limited becoming insolvent, each client’s funds will be returned, minus the administrators’ costs in handling and distributing these funds, rather than being treated as recoverable assets.

  • Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)

The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) is the UK’s compensation fund of last resort for customers of authorised financial services firms. If a firm becomes insolvent or ceases trading, the FSCS may be able to pay compensation to its customers. The FSCS covers business conducted by firms authorised by the FCA. AETOS Capital Group (UK) Limited clients would fall under the ‘investments’ claim category, whereby the cover is £50,000 per person per firm.

In the event of a top tier UK bank that we use going in to liquidation, any losses would be shared by the client in proportion to their share of total funds held with that bank. In the UK, any funds lost as a result of this would be covered by the FSCS under the ‘banks/building societies’ compensation claim category, up to a limit of £75,000 per person, per institution.
