How client funds are safeguarded

Your funds are safe with us, even in the event of financial trouble or insolvency. UK Payment Services Providers (PSPs) are legally required to safeguard customer funds, protecting them from other creditors.

Safeguarding means keeping customer funds separate from the PSP’s own money and assets. The safeguarding provisions are stipulated by the second Payments Services Directive (PSD2) and the second Electronic Money Directive (EMD2), implemented through the Payment Services Regulations 2017 (PSRs) and the Electronic Money Regulations 2011 (EMRs) and interpreted by the regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

In keeping with the UK regulations, FMPay safeguards client funds by holding them in a separate bank account with a reputable bank licensed by the European Central Bank.
