Please note that applying to a non-UK/non- CY/non-European entity will mean that you are not subject to UK and Cyprus or European client protections, including those for the protection of retail clients (including leverage caps and negative balance protection), although local protections will apply. This also means that your funds will not be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and the Cyprus Investor Compensation Fund.
