FSCS has completed its initial review of AFX Markets Ltd. We have concluded that customers may be able to receive compensation from FSCS regarding the losses suffered.
We will shortly be asking clients of AFX Markets Ltd to submit claims via our online claims service. Owing to the complexity of the AFX Markets failure we will review claims on a case-by-case basis. Also, customers are likely to be asked to complete a supplementary form in relation to AFX.
We’re sorry that it’s taken some time to reach this stage and we’re grateful for your patience.
