Safeguarding Client Money

Safeguarding Audit and Training

Safeguarding has been edging up the FCA’s regulatory focus for the past decade and payment and e-money institutions are now experiencing supervisory scrutiny like never before.

We are the leading payments compliance firm in the UK.

We work with payment and e-money institutions every day and therefore we understand that safeguarding is not without its complexity. Talk to us today and let us help simplify the journey for you.

Safeguarding customer funds

As a compliance professional in a payment or e-money institution, you want to ensure your customer funds are protected and make sure that, if you became insolvent, your customers’ payment instruction would be fulfilled or their funds returned to them.

We assist with queries such as what funds are relevant, when the obligation begins and ends and when reconciliation should happen.


Who does it apply to?

All authorised payment institutions (APIs), e-money institutions and small e-money institutions must safeguard client funds at the point of receipt. Small payment institutions may choose whether or not to safeguard but are encouraged to do so by the FCA.

You can benefit from our 10 years’ experience of assisting firms with their safeguarding arrangements. We provide a range of safeguarding services.
