FSCS will only use balances agreed with the Special Administrators to determine compensation amounts.

WorldSpreads clients who do not receive an email and form by 6 July should contact our Initial Contact Team on freephone 0800 678 1100 or 0207 741 4100. Please remember to check you spam filter regularly to ensure you receive the application form.

An application form can be dispatched by post if requested.

FSCS will pay compensation by cheque in UK Pounds Sterling.
