As a SCB regulated firm, we adhere to strict rules concerning our conduct of business, financial adequacy and treating customers fairly.
Securities Commission of the Bahamas (SCB)
Capital Index (Global) Ltd. (Capital Index) is authorised and regulated by the Securities Commission of the Bahamas (SCB), registration number SIA-F199-02, and we are obliged to follow the guidelines set out by the SCB under the Securities Industry Regulations (SIR) and any other applicable acts and regulations. We adhere to strict and rigorous regulatory requirements, segregation of client funds and treating customers fairly. For more information about our regulation please visit the Securities Commission of the Bahamas website.
Segregation of Funds
All client funds deposited with Capital Index are fully segregated from the company's own capital and deposited into separate bank accounts with Tier 1 credit institutions in the United Kingdom. The SIR rules require Capital Index to ensure a clear segregation between money belonging to clients and money that belongs to the firm. In the unlikely event of our insolvency, money belonging to clients will be excluded from our assets.
As a regulated firm, we are required to have a complaints handling procedure in the event that clients wish to express their dissatisfaction. We will investigate any complaint thoroughly in accordance with our complaint handling procedures and will provide a full response and explanation to any complaint we receive. All our staff receives training on how to handle complaints and you can be sure any problem you raise will be taken seriously.
Most complaints are resolved at an early stage, but if we are unable to satisfy your concerns you may be able to refer your case to the SCB. You should only approach the SCB if we have already provided you with a Final Response or have failed to do so by the time prescribed in our complaints handling procedure. For more information about our complaints policy please read our Complaints Procedure.
