  • You will not have access to the protection measures outlined in ASIC's Product Intervention order due to take affect from 29 March 2021.

  • You may also be excluded from access to the external dispute resolution scheme maintained by the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).

  • FP Markets is not required to provide you with a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) or Financial Services Guide (FSG).

  • If you qualify as a wholesale client because of the Wealth Test outlined above, then your money may be used for hedging or other purposes. Retail client money cannot be used for these purposes.

What if I do not
Qualifyfor an
FP Markets
Pro Account?

You can continue to trade as a retail client and take advantage of our tight spreads, unparalleled execution and award-winning multi-lingual customer support.

One of the aims of the new ASIC intervention order is to follow similar measures that have already been introduced in major overseas markets such as the United Kingdom and European Union. As a retail client, you will get the full advantage of all of the new protections.

With a licenced presence in Europe and as part of a global group of companies, we are familiar with the proposed changes, and the operational processes necessary to facilitate the change. Our dedicated customer support team and personal account managers will be on hand to assist FP Markets traders throughout the transitional period.
